Swift pace, light step, unswerving feet
Fr Richard was joined by the Archbishop of York, the Most Revd Stephen Cottrell, at a blessing for the Young Christian Climate Network, as they set off on the next stage of their relay walk from Cornwall to Glasgow for the COP26 meeting.
They were blessed using the words of St Clare of Assisi to St Agnes:
"What you hold, may you always hold. What you do, may you always do and never abandon. But with swift pace, light step, and unswerving feet, so that even your steps stir up no dust, go forward securely, joyfully, swiftly, on the path of prudent happiness."
