Well, I think I slipped up on Sunday, which is when I should have posted this picture of St Richard's Shrine. 22nd January, 1262 was the day that Richard of Chichester, otherwise known as Richard of Wyche (his birth place) was Canonised. To quote a friend of his, Ralf Bocking:
‘the Holy Father, attended by the cardinals and a great throng of both clergy and
people, on St Vincent’s day [22 January 1262], at the church of the Friars Minor in
Viterbo, most devoutly and solemnly placed [Richard] in the ranks of the saints. And
the Lord Pope himself pronounced the sentence of canonization amid tears of joy and
everyone gave thanks to God who had made St Richard the like of the saints in
The Reverand Canon Dr. Antony Cane, Chancellor of Chichester Cathedral gave a most informative sermon on the life of St. Richard, which can be read in pdf format here.
During Communion a new, and very singable, hymn, written and composed by the distinguished hymn-writer Canon Patrick Appleford (86), was sung for the first time.
"Entitled Friend and Brother, it is inspired by the Prayer of St Richard. He added [in a note to the Dean]:'I am delighted that you can use it on the 750th Anniversary of The Canonisation of Chichester's Saint: a great thrill for me. Patrick." quotation from the service booklet for Sung Eucharist yesterday.
On a seperate note: many thanks to all who have contributed to my recent uploads.
I hope you enjoy.
All the best,
