Today we remember Robert Leighton, Archbishop of Glasgow, d.1684

Robert Leighton was born in 1611, the son of a Presbyterian physician. Leighton studied at Edinburgh and on the continent where he was influenced by the piety and tolerance of the French Jansenists. In 1641 he became minister of Newbattle. In 1652 he was sent to negotiate with Cromwell the release of Scots prisoners taken in battle at Worcester, and Cromwell’s influence caused him to be appointed in the following year as Principal of Edinburgh University where he exercised a remarkable influence. His plans for an accommodation with the Presbyterians led to his appointment as Archbishop of Glasgow in 1670. After four years he resigned the archbishopric following his failure of his efforts at reconciliation. He retired to the south of England where he died in the year 1684. From Robert Atwell’s Celebrating the Saints,
A prayer for today:

O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: Be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; and grant to them even now glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
