Mother, this place was peaceful once, and blest, That golden statue on its tower poised high Held the Child Jesus — not upon its breast, But raised aloft, with little arms outspread As once upon the rood's unyielding bed — And all who passed might hear thy voiceless cry, From break of dawn until the day was done: Aged nine, he travelled to Stoneyhurst to begin his education this was the Stoneyhurst prep school in Birmingham.
At 14 he went to another Jesuit school in Brugelette in Belgium. He began his priestly studies in Rome; and in order to get there crossed the Channel and travelled by horse-drawn coach for nearly three weeks. Before he was 30 he had visited some of the principal seminaries in Europe. In May he visited Dublin and in the summer of the same year travelled extensively in France and Italy.
In he went to Spain. Travel to Rome in the winter of saw him falling ill in Genoa, although this did not stop him travelling widely in subsequent years both in Europe and the States, returning to Rome again in and to Baltimore in Becoming Bishop of Salford in limited his travelling a bit, since he confined his trips mainly to Europe, but with an excursion to Baltimore, too.
He became Archbishop of Westminster in , at which point his travels abroad almost stopped as he set about building up the diocese and the Cathedral. By my calculations he visited at least 14 countries, some of them many times. He must have witnessed a variety of church building styles; one can only wonder how his travels influenced the type of Cathedral he wanted and discussed with John F Bentley, the Cathedral Architect.
He thought, of course, about being a missionary to Wales and then Australia, but luckily for us, the latter journey never happened. Yet already over 25 million pieces of mosaic have been laid. To complete the decoration in the manner originally planned would require perhaps a hundred million.
Mosaic comprises small cubes of marble, stone or glass tesserae applied to a prepared surface to produce a pattern. The technique has been used since at least 3, BC. The early Christians adapted the Greek and Roman use of floor mosaics and applied it to floors and ceilings, particularly in the Byzantine period 6thth centuries AD. The glass tesserae used in the Cathedral average one square centimetre in size and come mainly from the island of Murano in Venice.
Some have gold or silver leaf fused fused on to clear glass with another thin sheet of Glasson top to protect the metal from the atmosphere. On average tessarae are used to the square foot, so the sanctuary arch mosaic consists of about , pieces and the Lady Chapel has 6 million of them! It is only here that the Cathedral architect, J F Bentley, played a direct part. The tesserae used are of irregular shape and predominantly silver in colour, the effect being toned down by the use of salmon-tinted cement and wide joints. In this, tracings of full-size colour cartoons of the designs are taken and put on the wall or ceiling.
The cartoons are then reproduced by pressing the tesserae individually into special oil-based putty which allows more time for adjustment than water-based material behind the tracings. A coat of plaster water-based for quick drying is applied to the wall or ceiling. Then the tesserae attached to the cartoon are pressed and hammered flat into the plaster all at the same time. When set, the cartoon is pulled away, revealing the mosaic now face up below. In both these chapels opus sectile cut and painted marble segments was adopted for the altarpieces.
This is because mosaic is only effective to the eye at a distance, while opus sectile is so at a closer range. He had succeeded Bentley as Cathedral Architect in A 'direct method' mosaic in the Holy Souls Chapel, demonstrating the use of Opus sectile at eye level and mosaic above. Mosaic designs were prepared by George Jack in the conventional Byzantine style. Particularly effective are the arch soffits, which contain 33 birds, and the sparkling fish-scale patterned gold vault. Cardinal Francis Bourne, who had succeeded Cardinal Vaughan in , chose Anning Bell both for the early mosaics in the Lady Chapel and for the sober tympanum above the main entrance But in neither case was he happy with the result.
Work on a Pownall design was underway in the apse when Bourne died in early , but in response to an organised campaign of criticism, his successor agreed to abandon the work and remove the mosaic about a fifth of the design already in place. The most recent [in — Ed. Boris Anrep, a Russian-born artist who had designed earlier, smaller mosaics in the Cathedral, was commissioned in to undertake the completion of the decoration in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
Full-size colour cartoons were made in his Paris studio, tesserae selected and attached to working drawings in Venice and the results crated and sent to London. Peter Indri undertook the fixing in , but the work was closely monitored and adjusted by Anrep and his assistant, Julian Vulliamy, using a huge work table in the transept. The gathering of manna in the desert is illustrated in Boris Anrep's 'stuck-on method' mosaic in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
The 19 years since Patrick Rogers wrote this piece have seen significant additions to the Cathedral mosaics: He designed the principal figures, though in the event he disliked the final result. Peter Indri again undertook the fixing And the latest [in — Ed. In translation the Latin inscription reads: It was a short, but very meaningful, ceremony and a well-deserved tribute to a good man. May he rest in peace. Taking the Piazza as a square, the cube is a square within a square you get the idea?
The mirrored panels reflected the surroundings, but were billed as the opportunity for selfies also. A Farewell Song At the Party for Fr Martin Plunkett, all present were challenged to join in song, as he got out his guitar and we sang the chorus and clapped. It was a great evening of parochial fellowship, fuelled by very decent and popular refreshment.
Doing the rounds of all present meant that Fr Martin had time for young Joseph, a very regular member of the faithful, whom he baptised more recently during his time here at the Cathedral. We entrust to you today the destiny of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the whole world and of every man and woman. Bend down to us sinners, heal our weakness, conquer all evil and grant that all the peoples of the earth may experience your mercy. In you, the Triune God may they ever find the source of hope.
Eternal Father, by the Passion and Resurrection of your Son, have mercy upon us and the whole world. Becoming Professional Singers The Probationer Choristers spend their first year learning the rudiments: But the beginning of each October brings the moment of their full entry into the Choir. The image shows them after they have been vested in their cottas, at the moment when Canon Christopher speaks of the privilege and work they are now taking on. The boys look appropriately serious, but, believe us, cheerfulness breaks through very quickly as soon as Vespers are over and the choristers are released for the afternoon.
Lights, music, action, camera Silver Sunday may not, thankfully, attract the publicity that Strictly Come Dancing does, but plenty of dancers came to Cathedral Hall for an afternoon Tea Dance organised by the Filipino Club. It was wet and cold outside, but action on the floor quickly warmed up the Hall. Among the guests was Mary Barsh 96 , herself a reminder of great dancing days as a former Tiller Girl.
Body and Soul in Co-operation at Mass Fr Stephen Brown Occasionally it is useful to look at things from a practical perspective, in the sense of the practical way we express what we believe. I want to look at the subject of the reception of Holy Communion which we believe to be the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, in other words, the Living Risen Jesus Himself, hidden under the appearance of bread and wine. Holy Communion is the sacrament designed by Christ to transform us into Himself, and for this to happen, it is vital that we are properly prepared and receive worthily; otherwise it will do us no good at all.
What are the conditions under which a person may receive Holy Communion? First, you must be a Catholic, secondly, you must truly believe that Holy Communion is Jesus Christ Himself and not a piece of blessed bread. Thirdly, you must want to receive Him. That sounds obvious, but casual indifference, and an unthinking reception is a possibility and a danger. Fourthly, you must be in a state of grace, that is, you must be free from serious sin; otherwise refrain from receiving until you have been to confession.
And fifthly, you must have kept the Eucharistic Fast; you must have refrained from food and drink except water and medicine for one hour before receiving. It is fitting that our body join in the preparation to receive Our Lord, and so we receive Him on an empty stomach. One hour is not difficult, perhaps too easy in fact, but nonetheless that is the present discipline.
The first meal of the day is called breakfast, stemming from the time when people would go to early morning Mass and receive Holy Communion having fasted all night. Afterwards they could then eat and break their fast. As to the manner of receiving, this too is important because it has an effect on our faith.
How we receive can reinforce our faith that we are receiving Jesus, or it can chip away at it and eventually destroy it. Our body and our soul are united, so what one does has an impact on the other. Body language is important and the body speaks to the soul and indeed is witnessed by others, who understand the meaning.
So, too, in receiving Holy Communion, what the body does is important because it speaks to the soul and to others about what is happening. The Church lays down the manner in which Holy Communion must be received — we are not completely free to decide for ourselves how would like to receive. The first option is to receive directly on the tongue. This option applies to every parish throughout the world by law. If you choose to receive this way, you say Amen, you open your mouth, bring your tongue forward till it covers your bottom lip and receive. If you choose to receive in this way, you hold up your hands clearly so the priest can see you intend to receive this way, you hold them flat so the priest can place the Sacred Host easily, with one hand beneath the other.
You pick up the host immediately and place it in your mouth. Do not try to grab the Host with two fingers — it is a gift, and gifts are not grabbed, they are received. Do not manhandle the Host, as this increases the possibility of it breaking. Do not turn round and walk off carrying the Host, it must be consumed immediately, then and there in front of the priest or minister; otherwise you risk being embarrassed by them following you to make sure that you have consumed it.
Do not receive with gloves on or with bandages. Putting out one hand is not acceptable, as it is usually followed by an attempt to cast the Host into the mouth like a peanut, and that is not an appropriate way to receive Our Lord and God. If you are carrying a baby or young child, you must receive on the tongue; there is too much that can go badly wrong otherwise.
Everything about the way we worship should foster a sense of adoration of God. The way we receive Holy Communion should be especially conducive to awe and wonder since here, God not only comes to meet us, but invites us to union with Himself - a taste of Heaven upon earth. His advice is particularly pertinent to us at the Cathedral, where many visitors come to Mass each week. Some are well-instructed and careful in their reception of the Blessed Sacrament, but others are not and we regularly find non-Catholics and the unbaptised in the queue for Holy Communion. If the priest or Eucharistic minister is unsure as to your good standing, they will ask if you are Catholic.
Please do not take offence at this, but understand that it is done to safeguard the Blessed Sacrament and to promote fruitful reception. Taking to the Streets The annual Blessed Sacrament Procession, although held right at the end of September, benefited from the remains of the hot summer weather and resumed its usual route of travel northwards from Westminster to Southwark. The route takes us past a real mixture of housing, with the brick of the multi-storeyed Victoria flats around the Cathedral, the terraced houses around Sacred Heart church in Horseferry Road and then the restrained splendour of the former hospital buildings near Lambeth Bridge.
South of the river, council estates sit opposite late Regency and early Victorian terraces of some splendour. It was pleasing that the weather meant people were out and about. Some watched with interest, especially outside the pubs, whilst others were intent on checking their phones. However, several asked with interest what was happening and what event was being marked and comments from Catholics whom we met on the way were encouraging, too.
We do not need to be kneeling or divided by sexes to receive Holy Communion well, but we do need to be prepared and aware that it is Jesus Christ who comes to us and whom we are receiving November St Hilda, , Abbess of Whitby feast day 17 November Hilda had the advantage of being born into a royal household in what is now the North East. Her father, King Edwin, was baptised in along with all his family, but was killed in battle six years later. Hilda, with other relatives, moved to Kent with St Paulinus, whilst her sister moved to France and became a nun.
It was not until that Hilda followed her into the religious life, rapidly becoming Abbess of Hartlepool and then, in , of Whitby, where she presided over a mixed community of monks and nuns, excelling, St Bede tells us, in administration and teaching, both great gifts of the Spirit.

At the beginning of the 13th century, the people of Europe began to live together in towns, much more so than previously. It was this closeness of population that gave rise to social needs. When people were scattered across the country, diseases were not so prevalent, epidemics were less likely to spread and rural communities looked after those who were sick.
With the advent of city life, albeit in a small way, came the demand for hospitals to care for the population. Innocent III saw the need for a hospital in the city of Rome and set about discovering the best way to accomplish it. He consulted many visitors to Rome and many distinguished medical authorities on what they considered the bestmanaged institutions for the care of the sick at that time.
Most of these recommended that the most successful hospital management was to be found in Montpellier, a French town near the shores of the Mediterranean, a few miles west of Arles. Accordingly, the Pope invited its administrative head, Guy of Montpellier, to whom the hospital there owed its successful organization, to come to Rome and establish a hospital of his Order in the Papal capital. At the beginning of the 13th century the Hospital of the Holy Spirit was built and soon attained worldwide fame for its careful nursing and skilful medical attention as well as the skill with which its surgical cases were treated.
Attendants at the hospital went out into the streets and poorer quarters of Rome to find sick patients, who were then transported to the hospital. In the larger cities, hospitals were already in existence and these took on a new life because of the new hospital movement. It may be a surprise to some that the modern world owes the institution of the city hospital to one of the medieval Popes, Innocent III, some eight centuries ago. He was the prime mover in what was probably one of the most far-reaching good works of supreme social significance, ever accomplished.
He was elected to the papacy at the age of 37 in , at the time when it was the greatest political power in Europe. By his personal persuasion and by official papal encouragement he succeeded, during his own pontificate, in having a number of hospitals established in all parts of the then civilized world, based on the model of the Roman Holy Spirit hospital. Many of these places were comparatively small. The population of London then was not more than 20,; Paris, even at the. That the influence of the movement initiated by Pope Innocent III was felt even in distant England is clear from the fact that all of the famous old British hospitals date their existence as institutions for the care of the ailing, from the 13th century.
Barts, founded in by Rahere, an Anglo-Norman priest and monk, was built as the Priory Hospital of St Bartholomew for the care of the poor and destitute sick. At the beginning of the 13th century it became, in imitation of the Hospital of the Holy Spirit in Rome, a hospital in the modern sense of the word. The Priory of St Mary of Bethlehem, was built just outside the city walls in and stood on the site now occupied by Liverpool Street station. It was a general hospital for the care of the sick of all kinds, though by the 14th century it was specializing exclusively in the treatment of mental illness.

My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint. What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Local custom will determine whether standards are to be brought and presented. If so, this should happen before any words are spoken. If several sentences are used, they may be interspersed with silence or music. The amount of material used will need to take account of the time available.
We commit ourselves to work in penitence and faith for reconciliation between the nations, that all people may, together, live in freedom, justice and peace. We pray for all who in bereavement, disability and pain continue to suffer the consequences of fighting and terror. We remember with thanksgiving and sorrow those whose lives, in world wars and conflicts past and present, have been given and taken away. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Ever-living God we remember those whom you have gathered from the storm of war into the peace of your presence; may that same peace calm our fears, bring justice to all peoples and establish harmony among the nations, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Almighty and eternal God, from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted, either by death or life: Hear our prayers and thanksgivings for all whom we remember this day; fulfil in them the purpose of your love; and bring us all, with them, to your eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The following hymn, or another that similarly expresses hope in God and trust for the future, may be sung: O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home;. Beneath the shadow of thy throne thy saints have dwelt secure; sufficient is thine arm alone, and our defence is sure.
Before the hills in order stood, or earth received her frame, from everlasting thou art God, to endless years the same.
A thousand ages in thy sight are like an evening gone; short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun. Time, like an ever-rolling stream, bears all our years away; they fly forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day. O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, be thou our guard while troubles last, and our eternal home.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. The wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace. This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him there is no darkness at all.
When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he sat down his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace: O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish, and those whose names we will never know. Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world, and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.
As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life and hope, now and for ever. We pray for the leaders of the nations, that you will guide them in the ways of freedom, justice and truth. Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer. We pray for those who serve in the armed forces of the Crown, that they may have discipline and discernment, courage and compassion. We pray for our enemies, and those who wish us harm, that you may turn the hearts of all to kindness and friendship. We pray for the wounded and the captive, the grieving and the homeless, that in all their trials they may know your love and support.
Most Holy God and Father, hear our prayers for all who strive for peace, and all who yearn for justice. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Representative and other members of the public come forward to lay wreaths, light candles or offer other symbols of remembrance and hope, such as single flowers or crosses.
When you go home tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today. Let us commit ourselves to responsible living and faithful service. Will you strive for all that makes for peace? We will Will you seek to heal the wounds of war? We will Will you work for a just future for all humanity? Merciful God, we offer to you the fears in us that have not yet been cast out by love: May we accept the hope you have placed in the hearts of all people, And live lives of justice, courage and mercy; through Jesus Christ our risen Redeemer.
Lord God our Father, we pledge ourselves to serve you and all mankind, in the cause of peace, for the relief of want and suffering, and for the praise of your name. Guide us by your Spirit; give us wisdom; give us courage; give us hope; and keep us faithful now and always.

The Choir School has just produced a video short showing the Choristers in the whole variety of their lives; it also has great drone images of the Cathedral and the area. Watch it — now! Arrayed in Garments of Gold The celebration of the feast of St Anthony of Padua was brightened up this year by the appearance of Fr Andrew Bowden, Chaplain to the Guild of St Anthony, in a new vestment which has kindly been presented for use. Oremus happened to be passing through the sacristy with a camera just as incense was blessed before the 5.
A Warm Reception for a New Family Many happy couples packed out the Cathedral for the Annual Mass in Thanksgiving for Marriage on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon, and among them we were delighted to see Abigail Bathelo with her family and new baby, pictured here with Cardinal Vincent. Abigail served out her pregnancy bravely in Clergy House Reception, from where many will remember her face, and we look forward to seeing her back on duty in due course. The Sistine Choir kindly offered a concert to the Cathedral during its recent visit to this country and the offer was taken up by a large crowd who came to hear them lead a musical tour through the repertoire sung in Rome during the liturgical year, including the famous Miserere of Allegri.
The choir is much larger than our own here at the Cathedral and here they are seen in full voice. But he also travelled around by train. The station was a mile back through the town from the Fort Hotel and there were regular services which would have taken him up country. Here is a photo of the Hughes sisters, one a nun and the other a novice without the cross on the royal blue habit. His friend Christopher Dawson, the renowned Catholic mediaeval historian, sent his daughters to the school.
The foundation stone of the local parish church was laid in April David would have heard Mass here — also walking back from the seafront and into the town of Sidmouth. Fr Alan, who was a very energetic priest, was also a scholarly and artistic man and it is tempting to think of him as a friend of David as well as his parish priest. Fr A Gordon Herring, parish priest of Sidmouth , was a convert from the Church of England and his family cut off all ties with him.
The painting is full of movement. It shows a cricket match on the pitch which is still behind the Fort Flats.
There is some artistic licence with the perspective and the content - dog walking and cricket taking place at the same time for example. The cricket pitch itself is still very much the same now as it was then. When a friend visited him there: He would have been a respected as an ex-soldier and WWI veteran in the community of Sidmouth.
Shortly before his final departure he was successfully operated on for appendicitis in the local cottage hospital. He wrote to a friend: It is also known that he was visited during his stay in hospital by the then local parish priest, Fr Herring, a thoughtful late convert to Catholicism.
It is of the Bedford Hotel and there is smoke coming from the chimney, which indicates that it was probably drawn in the spring before he had appendicitis. David began to write poetry in Sidmouth, some of which was included later in The Sleeping Lord and other fragments. He wrote that it has: He stated in a letter that he drafted more than 40 pages of poetry whilst at the Fort Hotel, writing about this work first on 31 May Her square-set walls carry, where her windows bay, a refinement of iron..
The Extraordinary Form Mass in the Cathedral at 4pm on Saturday 13 October will be offered with intention for the repose of the soul of David Jones, being the most conveniently situated day to his anniversary of death.
During the year he continued to write more of this exploratory poem. David enjoyed the company of Prudence Pelham daughter of the 6th Earl of Chichester very much. She visited him frequently in Sidmouth, often buying him books and they once enjoyed a happy trip to Ottery St Mary to visit the church there. She died aged 42 of multiple sclerosis in Even the Hotel Victoria shouts for joy..
His predecessor, Pope Pius Xll, held only two consistories during his pontificate, the second being five years beforehand in As a result, a number of important dioceses whose incumbent was traditionally made cardinal had to wait a number of years for this to be rectified, as well as bringing the number of electors to 70, then the statutory number. The consistory was held in the middle of December, shortly after which Cardinal Godfrey took possession of his titular church in Rome Ss Nereus and Achilleus.
This and other events, including a number of formal receptions in addition to celebrating Midnight Mass at the Venerable English College, meant a return home shortly after Christmas. On the right side of the altar is the book on a stand from which the Provost of the Metropolitan Chapter, Bishop George Craven, sang the Prayer of Visitation at the start of the ceremony. He was the only American citizen to hold that office until Archbishop Edward Adams was appointed Papal Nuncio in How to put it exactly?
The Baptist John worked all morning, watching the heads vanish, look! Long lines of them were waiting; and there — suddenly — Jesus appeared before him and he lost courage John felt the water lapping calmly between them under the sunlight; and Jesus waited, bearing his astonishment, wind in the curls of his hair The Shepherd What more do you need: This brook he tends his sheep at is tributary to a stream from the Dead Sea Half-submerged in it — the river flowing from him — he follows its course: The Holy Spirit The sky opens up and a dove flutters down, look!
John sees it descend but draw itself up as well, wings working to stay aloft so that that itself is a wonder of suspense and mesmerises He hears a voice then: For further information please call Oremus: We would like to thank our readers for their continued support and all those who send donations. Mary's soul is a sanctuary reserved for God alone, where love and zeal for the glory of God and the salvation of mankind reign supreme.

The shutters were drawn and the exhibition is displayed in womb-like rooms, paint-darkened for maximum effect. Churchill is the only Prime Minister in history to have had a work accepted by the RA for submission in the Summer Exhibition. His depiction of Chartwell in snow was sent in under the pseudonym of David Winter and was duly accepted in Churchill was an enthusiastic artist. Chartwell, as Winston duly recorded, looks magnificent in snow, but to appreciate the house and its setting at its best you must visit in May when the full beauty of the Weald is on display.
The PM was drawn back to the house, time and time again. There are exhibitions of uniforms, all pomp and circumstance, but the special secret of Chartwell is its surprising domesticity. The paintings are by Churchill, the chintz in common with other country houses. We wandered the house and gardens at our leisure and were lucky with the weather. I should add that we started our day in Westerham with a most congenial visit to the beautiful Catholic church of St John the Baptist.
Fr Ivan Aquilina was our host and we were made most welcome. I hope that his parishioners will come to us at the Cathedral for a return visit. Do come and support her. She is a wonderful speaker who brings such energy and vitality to the dusty lives of these historic royals.

For although Judas enjoyed much help, it was of no benefit to him, since he had no desire for it and contributed nothing from himself. But Peter, although willing and ready, fell because he enjoyed no help from above.

Thus I entreat you neither to entrust everything to God and then fall asleep, nor to think, when you are striving diligently, that you will achieve anything by your own efforts. God does not want us to be lying idly on our backs; therefore he does not effect everything himself. Nor does he want us to be boastful; therefore he did not give us everything. But having taken away from each of the two alternatives what is harmful, he has left us what is for our good.

The parting hour is come. Take thy farewell, poor world! For me, the perseverance has paid off, or maybe it was more luck. My entry choice was one of three paintings the smallest I produced in a more contemporary style, based on a modern fad of distorted portraits using computer and phone apps. To cap it all, the painting was sold before the Exhibition opened. Would I do it again next year?

I returned to painting a number of years ago, more as a hobby rather than anything else and have now accumulated a number of works under the stairs , which have taken me on an interesting journey. I have in recent time submitted pieces to the RA Summer Exhibition where the public can share centre stage with some of the biggest names in the art world, but without success until now. First there is a digital process, and if you get through that hoop, your work is then put in front of the panel for the thumbs down or in my case on this occasion, the thumbs up.
The tradition has been uninterrupted for years and Grayson Perry RA has co-ordinated this, the biggest RA Summer Exhibition, with a record 20, submissions. With the assistance of an internet search, the relic was correctly identified as such and James sought expressions. A considerable number of responses were received from around the world, including one from the Cathedral.
