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.

Dome of Home


The other day I came across a copy of the Lent edition of the Dome of Home, the illustrated bulletin of the ICKSP foundation at SS Peter and Paul and St Philomena in New Brighton. The shrine church has also now has an excellent website which can be viewed at http://domeofhome.org/ and which I have added to the list on the left hand side of this blog. 

On the website one can sign up, as I have, for their regular electronic bulletins as well as viewing pictures of the restoration work that has already been carried out and of work that is still in progress, as well as plenty of other information about the church. ICKSP is clearly making things happen in New Brighton, and are a cause well worth supporting by prayer and financial aid.
