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 Pity in the Rock at Dover

The virtual Pilgrimage now moves to Kent to visit other shrines of Our Lady there, beginning at Dover. The shrine of Our Lady of the Rock clearly ministered to travellers crossing the Channel. I wrote about this shrine in Our Lady of Pity in the Rock at Dover

Our Lady of Pity in the Rock at Dover Pray for us
