St Martin of Tours



While St Martin was still a soldier at Amiens he experienced the vision that became the most-repeated story about his life. He was at the gates of the city of Amiens with his soldiers when he met a scantily dressed beggar. He impulsively cut his own military cloak in half and shared it with the beggar. That night he dreamed of Jesus wearing the half-cloak Martin had given away. He heard Jesus say to the angels: "Here is Martin, the Roman soldier who is not baptised; he has clad me."

A lovely statue of the saint from the Catholic church dedicated to her in Ely. A relic of her hand is housed in this church. Queen of Northumbria; born (probably) about 630; died at Ely, 23 June, 679. While still very young she was given in marriage by her father, Anna, King of East Anglia, to a certain Tonbert, a subordinate prince, from whom she received as morning gift a tract of land locally known as the Isle of Ely. She never lived in wedlock with Tonbert, however, and for five years after his early death was left to foster her vocation to religion. Her father then arranged for her a marriage of political convenience with Egfrid, son and heir to Oswy, King of Northumbria. From this second bridegroom, who is said to have been only fourteen years of age, she receivedcertain lands at Hexham; through St. Wilfrid of York she gave these lands to found the minster of St. Andrew. St. Wilfrid was her friend and spiritual guide, but it was to him that Egfrid, on succeeding his father, appealed for the enforcement of his marital rights as against Etheldreda's religious vocation. The bishop succeeded at first in persuading Egfrid to consent that Etheldreda should live for some time in peace as a sister of the Coldingham nunnery, founded by her aunt, St. Ebba, in what is now Berwickshire. But at last the imminent danger of being forcibly carried off by the king drove her to wander southwards, with only two women in attendance. They made their way to Etheldreda's own estate of Ely, not, tradition said, without the interposition of miracles, and, on a spot hemmed in by morasses and the waters of the Ouse, the foundation of Ely Minster was begun. This region was Etheldreda's native home, and her royal East Anglian relatives gave her the material means necessary for the execution of her holy design. St. Wilfrid had not yet returned from Rome, where he had obtained extraordinary privileges for her foundation from Benedict II, when she died of a plague which she herself, it is said, had circumstantially foretold. Her body was, throughout many succeeding centuries, an object of devout veneration in the famous church which grew up on her foundation.

The apse of San Clemente's upper church dates to the 1120s and was probably executed by artisans from Byzantium. It was deliberately done in an 'antique' style, using symbols and designs inspired by the earliest Christian art in the catacombs. The Cross is the Tree of Life, for all manner of life dwells in its spreading vines, which represent the Church, including the four Fathers of the Latin Church. Reproduced courtesy of the Irish Dominican Fathers, © This is one of my favourite mosaics and one of the highlights of Rome.

Today, 23 November, is the feast of Pope St Clement I, martyr and bishop of Rome. Very little is known about the life of St Clement (92-101 AD). According to the oldest list of Roman bishops, he was the third successor to St Peter in Rome. He is the author of an Epistle to the Corinthians which was written c. 96 AD in the name of the Church of Rome to deal with disturbances in the Church at Corinth. The letter is one of the earliest witnesses to the authority of the Church of Rome and was so highly regarded that it was read publicly at Corinth with the Scriptures in the second century. St Clement is revered as a martyr: fourth-century accounts speak of his forced labour in the mines during exile to the Crimea in the reign of the emperor Trajan (98-117 AD) and his missionary work there which prompted the Romans to bind him to an anchor and throw him into the Black Sea. Sometime later, the accounts continue, the water receded, revealing a tomb built by angels from which his body was recovered. The relics of St Clement are preserved beneath the high altar of the basilica of San Clemente in Rome and the painting in this photo hangs in the refectory of the Dominican priory adjoining the basilica.

The Martyrdom of St Clement



Bernadette later described what happened in her first vision: 'She looked at me immediately, smiled at me and signed to me to advance, as if she had been my mother. All fear had left me, but 1 seemed to know no longer where 1 was. 1 rubbed my eyes, 1 shut them; but the lady was still there continuing to smile at me making me understand that 1 was not mistaken. Without thinking of what I was doing 1 took my rosary in my hands and went on my knees. The lady made with her head a sign of approval and herself took into her hands a rosary which hung on her right arm. When 1 attempted to begin the rosary and tried to lift up my hand to my forehead my arm remained paralysed, and it was only after the lady had signed herself (with the sign of the cross) that I could do the same. The lady left me to pray all alone; she passed the beads of her rosary through her fingers, but she said nothing; only at the end of each decade did she say the Gloria with me. When the recitation of the rosary was finished, the lady returned to the interior of the rock and the golden cloud disappeared with her.' This Saturday, 8 December 2007, begins the 150th anniversary year of the Lourdes apparitions. Those familiar with the story of Lourdes will recognise these scenes which are found in the Upper Basilica in Lourdes.

Detail of Our Lady of Lourdes praying the Rosary



On November 27, 1830, St Catherine Laboure reported that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to her during her meditations. The Blessed Virgin displayed herself inside an oval frame, standing upon a globe, wearing many rings of different colours, most of which shone rays of light over the globe. Around the margin of the frame appeared the words "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." Today, 8 December, is the feast of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception.

This final week of Advent centres around the incarnation of Christ and the Annunciation is central to that. As such, Our Lady is prominent at this time in Advent and in today's gospel, the story of the Annunciation (Luke 1:26-38) is read. This window of the event is from St Mary's church in Nottingham.

A window from the Paget family in Holy Trinity, Skipton which I believe is by the Belgian stained glass artist, Capronnier. The window has three scenes from the life of Christ: Christ the Good Shepherd, the Ascension, and Christ calling St Peter the apostle.

Skipton Paget window



A beautiful and striking window in memory of J.B. Rayson who was Master of Skipton School. The window is in the parish church. The Greek verse is from Revelation 22:2 and reads: "the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month", perhaps a reference to education... As for the Hebrew verse on the left, I don't know any Biblical Hebrew yet - I won't start learning that until next year at least!

Saint Francis de Sales (21 August 1567 - 28 December 1622) was bishop of Geneva, Switzerland. He worked to convert Protestants back to Catholicism, and was an accomplished preacher. He is known also for his writings on the topic of spiritual direction and spiritual formation (including Introduction to the Devout Life), and other religious subjects. De Sales was beatified by Pope Alexander VII in 1661 and canonized by the same pontiff in 1665. He was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius IX in 1877. His feast day falls on 24 January. This window by Comper is in All Saints' convent chapel, Cowley in Oxford.

Nunc dimittis



This window in Bolton Priory probably depicts Absolom, the third son of king David who rebelled against him and tried to take the crown. Consequently, he lost the battle, fled into some woods and was entangled in the oak trees, whereupon the general of the army killed him. This story was read at Mass today, and reminded me of this stained glass window. Why is Absolom depicted in glass? It seems that the mourning that David expressed for Absolom was taken by the medievals as a prefigurement of the 'grief' God felt for the death of Jesus Christ, his son. There is also an inversion in that Christ was the perfectly obedient son, but Absolom was the rebellious son, thus heightening the prefigurement.

Absolom



"An intoxicated and undisciplined eros, then, is not an ascent in “ecstasy” towards the Divine, but a fall, a degradation of man. Evidently, eros needs to be disciplined and purified if it is to provide not just fleeting pleasure, but a certain foretaste of the pinnacle of our existence, of that beatitude for which our whole being yearns. Two things emerge clearly from this rapid overview of the concept of eros past and present. First, there is a certain relationship between love and the Divine: love promises infinity, eternity—a reality far greater and totally other than our everyday existence. Yet we have also seen that the way to attain this goal is not simply by submitting to instinct. Purification and growth in maturity are called for; and these also pass through the path of renunciation. Far from rejecting or “poisoning” eros, they heal it and restore its true grandeur... By contrast with an indeterminate, “searching” love, this word [agape] expresses the experience of a love which involves a real discovery of the other, moving beyond the selfish character that prevailed earlier. Love now becomes concern and care for the other. No longer is it self-seeking, a sinking in the intoxication of happiness; instead it seeks the good of the beloved: it becomes renunciation and it is ready, and even willing, for sacrifice... This is love in its most radical form. By contemplating the pierced side of Christ (cf. 19:37), we can understand the starting-point of this Encyclical Letter: “God is love” (1 Jn 4:8). It is there that this truth can be contemplated. It is from there that our definition of love must begin. In this contemplation the Christian discovers the path along which his life and love must move." - Pope Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est

Happy St Valentine's day!



St David of Wales or Dewi Sant, was a saint of the Celtic Church. He was the son of Sandde, Prince of Powys, and Non, daughter of a Chieftain of Menevia whose lands included the peninsula on which the little cathedral town of St David's now stands. St David is thought to have been born near the present town of St David's. The ruins of a small chapel dedicated to his mother, Non, may be seen near St. David's Cathedral David became the Abbot of St David's and died on 1st March 589. An account of his life was written towards the end of the 11th century by Rhygyfarch, a monk at Llanbadarn Fawr near Aberystwyth. Many miracles were attributed to him. One miracle often recounted is that once when Dewi was preaching to a crowd at Llandewi Brefi those on the outer edges could not hear, so he spread a handkerchief on the ground, and stood on it to preach, whereupon the ground rose up beneath him, and all could hear. He was buried in what is today St David's Cathedral in Pembrokeshire. His holiness was such that medieval pilgrims equated two pilgrimages to St David's were worth one pilgrimage to Rome - a great saving in journeying at that time! Fifty churches in south Wales alone bear his name. This window is from Great St Mary's church in Cambridge.

"The Easter Triduum, which the Church now prepares to celebrate, invites us to share in the mystery of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection. These days are the heart of the liturgical year. On Holy Thursday the Church recalls the Last Supper. At the Chrism Mass, the Bishop and his priests renew their priestly promises and the sacramental oils are blessed. The Mass of the Lord’s Supper commemorates Jesus’ institution of the sacrament of his Body and Blood and his commandment that we should love one another. On Good Friday, we ponder the mystery of sin as we listen to the account of the Lord’s passion and venerate the wood of his Cross. Holy Saturday, a day of silence and prayer, prepares for the joy of the Easter Vigil, when the light of Christ dispels all darkness, and the saving power of his Paschal Mystery is communicated in the sacrament of Baptism. May our sharing in these solemn celebrations deepen our conversion to Christ, particularly through the sacrament of Reconciliation, and our communion, in the hope of the resurrection, with all our suffering brothers and sisters throughout the world." - Pope Benedict XVI This window is one of a series in Nottingham Cathedral.

Two of Jesus' disciples were walking to Emmaus after the Crucifixion when the resurrected Jesus himself drew near and went with them, but they did not recognise him. At supper that evening in Emmaus '... he took bread, and blessed it, and brake and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight' (Luke 24: 30-31).
