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.

LMS Pilgrimage to York

Following on from my previous post with its reference to the recusant heritage of York and the recent Latin mass Society Pilgrimage there, which I commented on last month in Mass in York Minster there are two illustrated accounts of the Pilgrimage on the LMS Chairman's blog and they can be seen here and here. The pictures include not only the Mass itself but also the visit to the shrine of St Margaret Clitherow in The Shambles.

Friends who were there commented on the beauty of the celebration in the Minster and how enjoyable the whole weekend had been.
