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.

News of the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem

I was delighted to see on the New Liturgical Movement a post by Fr Lawrence Lew OP about his recent stay with the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem in the US.

I met the canons at the two conferences almost a decade or so ago on the Traditional liturgy which were held at Merton College here in Oxford. I was most impressed by Dom Daniel Augustine and the young men he had recruited into his community and I continue to esteem them and keep them in my prayers.

Fr Lawrence's account can be seen at Visit to the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem
