  • In Praise of Dispassion
    Some of the best advice ever given is that one ought to think twice before speaking. But we seem to have lost a vital component necessary to think even once: restraint.

  • Blessing of the New Painting of St Bede at Clapham Park

  • Rogationtide and the Prayer of Petition
    Rogationtide is traditionally a time of prayer in preparation for the Ascension; England was one of the earliest countries to spread the custom.
