Feast Day of St. Richard the Pilgrim
Each saint has great intercessory power on his or her feast day. Today, let us ask for the intercession of St. Richard as we read about his life. Richard was a father and nobleman from England. His children convinced him to take a pilgrimage to Rome. Richard died on the way. His children laid him to rest in Italy. His two sons, Willibald and Winnibald, and daughter Walburga also became saints. Richard’s legacy was made known through his children.
St. Richard the Pilgrim, pray for us.
