Richard of Chichester

Day-by-day

Small Yellow Cross

Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits you have given me,
For all the pains and insults you have borne for me.
O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,
May I know You more clearly,
Love You more dearly,
Follow You more nearly

Shortened Version:
Day by day,
O Dear Lord,
three things I pray:
to see you more clearly,
to love you more dearly
and follow you more nearly,
day by day.

Prayer Of Thanks

Sketch of statue of St Richard of Chichester

Lord Jesus Christ,
I thank You for all the blessings
You have given me,
and for all the sufferings
and shame You have endured for me,
on which account that pitiable cry of sorrow was Thine:
” Behold and see, if there was any sorrow like unto My sorrow!”
” You know, Lord, how willing I should be to bear insult, and pain, and death for You; therefore have mercy on me, for to You, I commend my spirit.” Amen

(By St Richard of Chichester)
