Up late last night. Away early this morning. Didn't write a reflection today.

But today is the feast of Richard of Chichester, whose words inspired the song "Day by Day." His prayer --

Dear Lord, of thee three things I pray:
To see thee more clearly,
Love thee more dearly,
Follow thee more nearly.
