Book of Saints – Richard – 9 June

main article for Saint Richard of AndriaArticle

(Saint) Bishop (June 9) (12th century) Possibly an English Saint. We only meet him in the South of Italy, where he is venerated as the first Bishop of Andria. A document still in existence proves that in A.D. 1196 he, as Bishop of Andria, officiated at a Translation of Sacred Relics, and it is historically certain that from the time of his passing from this world he has been liturgically honoured as a Saint.
