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.

Marian Pilgrimage - Our Lady of Evesham

The Pilgrimage now moves west to the valleys of the Severn and Avon, and resumes at Evesham. Apart from Glastonbury Evesham can probably claim to be the oldest place of Marian devotion in the country.

My post from last year with the link to the one from 2020 can be seen at Our Lady of Evesham

Our Lady of Evesham Pray for us
