His first time in Oxford, and indeed the UK, Fr General’s visit started with a walk through the grounds of Christ Church College and into the city centre, stopping at iconic sites such as the Sheldonian Theatre and Bodleian Library. The tour ended at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, where the group spent some time reflecting on the lives of the martyrs, Protestant and Catholic, who are remembered on a memorial within the church.
Upon returning, Fr General was given a tour of Campion Hall and a viewing of some of its treasures, including Edmund Campion’s Agnus Dei and his copy of the Summa Totius Theologiae. During lunch, Fr General enjoyed an informal chat (at times in Spanish, his native language!) with some of the Hall’s current students.
