And thus this day a triple light is given….

To paraphrase a line from Charles Price’s stanza added to Christopher Wordsworth’s hymn, “O day of radiant gladness” (hymn 48 in The Hymnal 1982).

Today we commemorate three saints in the Calendars of the Anglican Churches: Sylvester, Bishop of Rome; John Wycliffe, Theologian and Reformer; and Samuel Ajayi Crowther, Bishop in Western Africa.
