St. Richard’s 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.
Prayer to St. Richard
Glorious St. Richard,
you are an outstanding example of Divine Love and Faith.
Your greatest pleasure was in rendering service to others,
and your charity to the poor commands great admiration.
Intercede for us that we may persevere in Faith and Love
and become sharers of your heavenly glory.
St. Richard, Pray for Us!
