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.

Bishop Byrne at the London Oratory

The New Liturgical Movement has a report about the Solemn Mass for St Philip Neri's day celebrated in advance for St Philip's School by Bishop Byrne at the London Oratory earler today. The illustrated account can be seen at Pontifical High Mass of St Philip celebrated by Bishop Robert Byrne at the London Oratory.
