Saint Richard, Bishop of Chichester

Celtic CrossAlmighty God, who pouredst thy grace richly upon Saint Richard, and madest him a true overseer of thy Church in this land: Grant unto the clergy, after his example, not seeking their own advancement, to spend themselves for their people’s sake; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, the light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who didst set blessed Richard to be a Bishop in the Church, that he might feed thy sheep by his word, and guide them by his example: Grant us, we beseech thee, to keep the faith which he taught, and to follow in his footsteps; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
