LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

It's hard to bear . . .

. . . being the smallest member of the Community, and getting send to light the Paschal Candle !

For those who don't know, this is fr Ursus, the youngest - and by quite a sizeable margin the shortest - member of the community at Blackfriars, Oxford; shown in one of fr Lawrence Lew OP's splendid photos of life at Blackfriars, more of which can be found on his flickr pages.

(If you don't know fr Lawrence's flickr pages, by the way, do let me commend them mightily : most days he posts one or two of his own wonderful photos, often of things relevant to the occasion, and usually very beautiful.)

  1. This is a great photo! I can almost imagine what Fr Ursus is thinking.
