Saint Richard of Chichester (1253)

He was a much-loved English bishop who was persecuted by King Henry III. By his courage, simplicity and poverty, he triumphed over all his enemies. He preached one of the crusades against the Turks. There were eight great crusades, waged by the Catholics to protect the sacred places in the Holy Land. The first crusade began in 1096 and the last one ended in 1291.
