Fifth Wednesday in Lent: Martyrdom and Romero and Dorothy Day

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Today we celebrate the Annunciation that pivotal moment in salvation history when Mary’s “yes” to God changed each of our lives. Another emphatic “yes” to God is shown by the lives of the martyrs and martyrdom is one of the central themes of the ferial readings for the Fifth Wednesday of Lent. Thus it is particularly appropriate that at 5pm on Wednesday, here at Blackfriars, Oxford, marking the 35th anniversary of the martyrdom of Archbishop Romero, the Las Casas Institute welcomes Fr Brian Pierce OP to deliver a lecture on the Archbishop and his legacy entitled ‘He Heard their Voice: Archbishop Romero – Mystic and Prophet’. There are still a few spaces left so do RSVP on lascasas@bfriars.ox.ac.uk if you wish to come along. Read more

Fourth Wednesday of Lent: What if it's true?

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Wasn't Jesus just a good human person? Charismatic, prophetic, a bit too idealistic maybe, and politically a bit too crass? Upsetting a lot of people, but basically a good guy in the wrong place? A man uniquely touched by God, but still just a man like us? Read more
