Hi everybody,

Many thanks for the warm welcome back.

Today I have three views of the newly refurbished and restored shrine to St Richard of Chichester.

He was born in Droitwich 1197, educated at Oxford and before taking up the cloth was chancellor of the diocese of Canterbury. When the archbishop was exciled Richard went with him, returning circa 1242 to the parish priesthood of Charring and Deal. He was elected Bishop of Chichester in 1244, but, Henry III and part of the chapter refused to accept him inspite of his being concecrated so in 1245. For two years, until King Henry was threatened with excommunication, he lived in Tarring and travelled round his diocese on foot. He lived a frugal life and died in 1253. He was initially buried in the Chapel of St Edmund, his patron. He was Canonised in 1262and was moved to the shrine in 1276. Sadly, under orders from Henry VIII, executed through Cromwell, the shrine was destroyed. The current shrine was re-established in 1930.
He is well known for his prayer:

"Thanks be to you, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day.
Amen."

I hope you enjoy.

All the best,

James

V1 is so beautiful, it's gentler, more inviting than the bold symmetrical statement of V2. The statue on the left and kneelers create a sort of L-shaped frame.
I like the idea of V3 but it's giving me vertigo!

Thanks for your comments Carole and Moira.

V3 was where I went to get the photographs of the reconsecration for the cathedral records. I chose this spot as there was a large congregation in attendance for evensong, which was the occasion of the rededication, and I felt it would be the only position from which I could catch all the action. Good descision as it happens - I could capture it all without getting in the way and get a good photograph of Bishop John performing his last major act in the cathedral before he retires. Unfortunately I couldn't get dead centre as there is a pillar in the way.

All the best,

James

Some truly stellar images of this lovely church. V3 is definitely a stand-out image, although it does make me dizzy.
