Richard of Chichester: each day

Sunday, June 16, 2013
    Feast of Richard of Chichester, Bishop, 1253
    Commemoration of Joseph Butler, Bishop of Durham, Moral Philosopher, 1752
    All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
    —2 Corinthians 4:15-16 (NIV)
Thanks be to thee,
My Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which Thou hast given us;
for all the pains and insults which Thou hast borne for us.
O most merciful redeemer,
friend and brother,
may we know thee more clearly,
love Thee more dearly,
and follow Thee more nearly;
For Thine own sake.
    ... St. Richard of Chichester (1197-1253), attributed (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, receive my prayer.
