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.

An Oratory for Vancouver?

My friend and fellow Brother of the Oratory David Forster has very kindly drawn attention to this blog on his website. I am happy to repay the compliment and urge you to look at Friends and Followers of St Philip Neri and in particular a story in the News section about the potential establishment of an Oratory in Vancouver.
