It’s been a  John Henry Newman week…

…marking his birthday. An excellent lecture at St Mary’s University by Bishop Philip Egan, looking in depth at Newman’s Idea of a University and applying its message to our own time. Scholarly, thoughtful, challenging, and somehow offering a message of hope and reassurance for the future. It opened up wide channels of thought about what could be achieved…And then, the next day, at Littlemore,  a celebration of Newman’s thoughts on beauty – in nature, in music, in architecture  – with a superb lecture by Father Guy Nichols, followed by lovely music from a string quartet…the Sisters of The Work welcomed
