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.

Another blog to read

My friend and fellow Oratorian Brother David Forster has drawn my attention to a new blog by Arthur Crumly. I have met Arthur on a couple of occasions and he has a wealth of experience as a server and MC in the Traditional rite which has been built up over decades of faithful service. He is now sharing that expertise with others through this new venture, The Blog of Arthur Crumly. I have added it to the blogroll as Arthur Crumly blog so as to fit my listings style.

He is very much to be commended in that as a means of sharing his knowledge and helping to ensure the survival of good liturgical practice.
