Saint Richard of Chichester was the son of a gentry farmer who became a reforming Bishop of England. He was a scholar, studying at Oxford and in Europe. In 1245, he became Chancellor and Bishop through the intervention of Pope Innocent IV, when  Henry III had appointed another. St. Richard denounced corruption, introduced clerical reforms, and supported papal rights. Once during Mass he dropped the chalice with the consecrated precious blood yet not one drop spilled. He is buried by the altar of Bl. Edmund the Confessor.
