Roots of English Catholicism

Some of you may know that I am away from home, presently in England. I am staying this weekend with an old friend of mine.

My friend took me for a little drive and we stopped off at Hursley, a beautiful village with medieval and Georgian houses and a fine Victorian church in Hampshire, not far from Winchester. John Keble was Vicar of Hursley from 1835 until his death in 1866. With Newman and Pusey, he was a pillar of the Oxford Movement. We visited the church and Keble’s grave.

Without going into details, many aspects of my future vocation came through. Indeed, I ask the prayers of my readers as I begin to enter the most painful part of my life. I was thankful for my little pilgrimage today.
