Icon of St. Cormac of the Sea

Back to WESTERN SAINTS ICONS

Icon of St. Cormac Ua-Liathan ("Of the Sea").

Feast: June 21

St. Adamnan of Iona describes this Scottish Saint as having attempted thrice to find a wilderness in the midst of the ocean. Not finding one, he travelled extensively throughout the Orkneys and Shetlands, perhaps the Faroes, and "beyond the limits of human wanderings," as St. Adamnan wrote. As prophesied by St. Columba, St. Cormac returned to Ireland and became abbot of the monastery at Durrow, where he was laid to rest. Holy Father Cormac, pray to God for us!

Icon: by the hand of Aidan Hart, United Kingdom (Oecumenical Patriarchate). The image is a thumbnail; click on it to see greater detail.
