John De la Bere RIP

John De la Bere RIP

On Saturday, I concelebrated at the Funeral Mass for John De la Bere (23.11.22 – 23.6.17). I first met John in 1974 when I started my Mathematics and Philosophy degree, and John was a lecturer in the Mathematics Department. I spent more time with him in more recent decades, mostly through St Michael’s – the… Continue Reading

Common Worship?

This is particularly of interest because, especially in… Continue Reading

Fr Donald Schell sent me a document by Fr Rick Fabian arguing not to use the Nicene Creed regularly in the… Continue Reading

Extraordinariate

Extraordinariate

A potpourri post with papal pivot. Ordinariate growth? I can’t pretend to fully comprehend the details etc. of the Roman Catholic Personal Ordinariate for disaffected Anglicans. My understanding is that if you grow up in it, and want to be a priest, you must be celibate.  “Anglican Patrimony” apparently means Elizabethan language but doesn’t mean… Continue Reading
