About Time 17

A prayer #AboutTime , translated from a Latin original supposedly spoken by St Richard of Chichester on his deathbed. ( Richard of Chichester was a thirteenth century reforming Bishop. The most famous phrase in the prayer "know him more clearly, love him more dearly, follow him more nearly," seems to be a modern addition, or interpretation, though, only appearing in translations of the prayer from the beginning of the twentieth century. Whatever its origins, it is a beautiful reminder that our relationship with God needs to be nurtured "day by day", not just for an hour on Sundays!
