This year marks the 150 anniversary of the birth of Dubliner Blessed Columba Marmion.  During his lifetime, he was a curate in Dublin, Professor in Clonliffe College, a chaplain for Redemptorist nuns and a women’s prison before getting permission from his bishop to become a monk in 1886. Pat Coyle spoke to Fr. Jim Caffrey, Rector of St. Paul’s Church, Arran Quay, Dublin – where Bl. Columba was baptised, to hear about this man who was beatified by Pope John Paul the Second in 2000.
