Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Motus Septentrionalis


I have copied this directly from Fr Tim's Hermeneutic of Continuity blog as I thought it might well interest those in my home area, or anyone going up North. I have added a link to the site to the bloglist.



New blog - Motus Septentrionalis
A priest friend just emailed me news of a new blog
Motus Septentrionalis ("Northern Movement") to promote the traditional liturgy in the North of England. Here is the introductory text:

" This blog is offered as a forum within which events to promote and celebrate the Traditional Catholic Latin Liturgy can be organised in the North of England. The idea emerged during informal conversations at the 2010 Low Week Latin Mass Society training course at Ushaw College. "

Catholics who wish to attend the traditional liturgy are much better off if they are in easy reach of London, though it is good to see at Motus Septentrionalis a growing list of regular Masses in the North.
