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.

Candlemas images

I wrote last week about serving the Candlemas liturgy at SS Gregory and Augustine here in Oxford. Last night I was shown the Flickr photographs of the Mass, taken by Joseph Shaw, the Chairman of the LMS and I thought I would put in a link to them. The whole set can be viewed here.


The procession moves from the Sanctuary.

Unfortunately I managed to get in the camera's eye once or twice, but otherwise the photographs are very pleasing, and give a good impression of what was a beautiful celebration of the feast.
