In a crumb of bread the whole mystery is
(Patrick Kavanagh. The Great Hunger VI)
If baptism is the great sacrament which brings us to life in Christ, then the Mass or the Eucharist is the beating, living heart of the Church, from which that life is nourished, refreshed and renewed each day.
Universities today must be better than perhaps ever before at explaining and defending their place in society. Such was the message delivered by Lord Patten of Barnes, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, at the 2018 Newman Lecture.
