THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Richard illustrates the possibility of holiness for us all. Saints are not so much heroes to admire from afar, but people to encourage and challenge us to make the most of our God-given possibilities in the different circumstances of our own lives.
The Rt Revd Dr John Hind, Bishop of Chichester 2001-2012, in his Preface to The Story of Saint Richard, Bishop of Chichester, 2003.
(The Feast of St Richard of Chichester is on Wednesday 16 June.)
