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.

Inauguration of St Walburge Preston as an ICKSP church



There is post from the New Liturgical Movement about the inauguration today of the very impressive church of St Walburge Preston as a shrine for Eucharistic devotion under the care of ICKSP at the invitation of the Bishop of Lancaster. The NLM post can be seen at Inaugural Mass of New ICKSP Apostolate in Preston, England - Saturday, Sept. 27

I posted about this initiative earlier this year in Good news from Preston.
