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.

More on the new Archbishop of Liverpool


Following on from what I posted in New Archbishop of Liverpool I see that the online Catholic news agency Zenit has a post about the translation of Bishop McMahon to the Archdiocese of Liverpool which can be viewed here.

In addition there is also from Fr Tim Finigan this post Greg Murphy interviews Bishop McMahon on usus antiquior in which the Bishop talks positively about his attitude to celebrating the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.
