Catacomb of St Sebastian, Rome

Br. Seán McLaughlin FSO

In pagan Rome it was believed that immortality and greatness was ensured by the endurance of the remembrance of a person. It was this belief that gave rise to wonderful feats of architectural brilliance. At the same time, no greater punishment could one inflict on the Romans than to pronounce a damnation memoria – a condemnation of memory, in which every trace of them was obliterated. In Christian Rome, however,

St Mary the Virgin

Br. Seán McLaughlin FSO

The Oxford Movement is rightly associated with its three main protagonists: Newman, Keble and Pusey. These Oriel dons provided the movement with the leadership, enthusiasm and intellectual rigor which would ensure its success, so much so that by the mid 1830s the influence of the Oxford Movement began to eclipse the hugely popular Evangelical Movement. Yet despite their greatness, the genesis, progress and consequences of the Oxford Movement cannot be reduced to Keble, Pusey and Newman alone. The movement is indebted to many men, who

“I am the good Shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.” John 10:11.

Our Lord here appropriates to Himself the title under which He had been foretold by the Prophets. “David My servant shall be king over them,” says Almighty God by the mouth of Ezekiel: “and they all shall have one Shepherd.” And in the book of Zechariah, “Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, and against the man that is My fellow, saith the Lord of Hosts; smite the Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.” And in like manner St. Peter speaks of our returning “to the Shepherd and Bishop of our souls.” (Ezek. 37:24. Zech. 13:7. 1 Pet. 2:25.)

St Paul

Fr. Hermann Geissler, FSO

Pope Francis wishes the Church, in every part of the world, to become more missionary. In his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii gaudium, he addresses the faithful asking themto embark upon a new chapter of evangelization” (n. 1). St. Paul, an apostle and a missionary, still remains a model for us today. For Blessed John Henry Newman Paul is the “glorious Apostle, this sweetest of inspired writers, this most touching and winning of teachers” towards whom he “ever felt a special

Window Iffley Church

I adore you, O Lord, as is most fitting, for you are gone to heaven to take my part there and defend my interests. I have one to plead for me with the Lord of all. On earth we try to put ourselves under the protection of powerful men when we have any important business on hand; we know the value of their influence, and we make much of any promise they make us. You are omnipotent, and you exert your omnipotence for me.

Sermon 17 (7th May 1837)

“He shall glorify Me.” John 14. 14.

When our Lord was leaving His Apostles, and they were sorrowful, He consoled them by the promise of another Guide and Teacher, on whom they might rely instead of Him, and who should be more to them even than He had been. He promised them the Third Person in the Ever-blessed Trinity, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Himself and of His Father, who should come invisibly,
