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 pictures of the Pope in Spain

The New Liturgical Movement website has more pictures of the Papal visit to Spain, some of which I have copied and pasted here. The NLM appears to have a similar taste to myself in which photographs it selected - good taste will out!

The complete post is here, with an interesting discussion of the merits or otherwise of Sagrada Familia as is is now, and indeed of Gaudi's status as an architect.

Santiago de Compostela:

The famed Botafumeiro

There are other pictures here, from Idle Speculations.


Concecrating the Altar

The Pope ouside Sagrada Familia for the Angelus

There are videos and the homily here from Idle Speculations.
