Bl Columba Marmion's Feast

From the Roman Martyrology, 2004 edition, for today the 30th of January:
16*.  In the monastery of St Benedict of Maredsous also in Belgium, of the blessed Columba (Joseph) Marmion, who, born in Ireland, made a priest and then made Abbot in the Order of St Benedict, that as father of cenobites and leader of souls to holiness of life, shone with spiritual doctrine and eloquence.
Bl Columba Marmion, pray for us, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
