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.

The debate within SSPX

My attention had been drawn by a friend to a post on The Sensible Bond about the exchange of letters within the leadership of SSPX about responding to the Holy See and the current discussions. It can be read here.

As I have said previously about these discussions, it is time to pray, and to pray earnestly, for a successful outcome.
