Richard Hooker

Priest and Theologian
b. 1553
d. 1600

A favorite of our own Fr Austin, Richard Hooker is author of the masterpiece Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity and a great defender of the Book of Common Prayer.

Collect:

O God of truth and peace, who didst raise up thy servant Richard Hooker in a day of bitter controversy to defend with sound reasoning and great charity the catholic and reformed religion: Grant that we may maintain that middle way, not as a compromise for the sake of peace, but as a comprehension for the sake of truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
