Puer natus est nobis

We have an addition to our family. Hector arrived on the evening of the last day of the year.


If you are in Oxford, the Christening will take place in SS Gregory & Augustine's, in the Woodstock Road, at 3pm on Saturday 9th January.

  7. Oh, happy day! Congratulations & many prayers!!!

    THE
    LOAF
    OF
    BREAD

    Every work of God...
    With it something brings.
    On humid, hot-days clouds
    Let go their rain-drop pings.

    'Fore lady lightening strikes,
    She warns us with her thunders,
    To shelter kith and kin
    As lightening sometimes blunders.

    And crusty, creeks bring rocks
    And all the rocks bring slime
    Where little boys explore
    To slip on rocks they climb.

    And under babies' arms,
    New lives bring loaves of bread.
    Holy Mother brings Our Lord
    Blood-sacrificed un-red

    To feed the soul, which brings our flesh
    To earth then, hopefully, Heaven…
    The priest, the rock, the Church, the flock
    The sanctus sacrificium et seven.
