Argyll & the Isles
Saint Moluag, (Lua, Luan, Murlach, or Lugaidh) was the first bishop of Argyll and the Isles. He was a hugely important associate of Columba. Whilst Columba worked among the Celts, Moluag worked among the Picts. Columba settled on Iona, Moluag on Lismore.
He was trained at Bangor and went on to found 100 monastic settlements in Ireland and Scotland. He settled in Clachan, Kintyre and at Lismore, which was to become the seat of the Bishop of Argyll & the Isles.
He died at Rossmarkie on the Moray Firth on June 25th 592.
The theological virtue of hope is symbolized by the colour green, just as the burning fire of love is symbolized by red. Green is the colour of growing things, and hope, like them, is always new and always fresh. Liturgically, green is the colour of Ordinary Time, the season in which we are being neither especially penitent (in purple) nor overwhelmingly joyful (in white).
