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.

Dominic Mary of Libera me blogspot RIP

My friend David Forster has drawn my attention to his post on the St Tarcissius blog to the sad news of the death of Dominic Mary, the blogger of Libera me. His post has a further link to that of Gem of the Ocean, Dominic Mary's widow. Please join with us in praying for the repose of his soul and for his widow at this time.
