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.

Today, at 12:00 noon, Archbishop Longley will ordain two Dominican friars - frs Robert Gay and Thomas Skeats - to the Sacred Priesthood, and one - fr Lawrence Lew - to the Diaconate, in the Priory Church of the Holy Spirit, Blackfriars, Oxford.

As you probably know, the motto of the Order of Preachers is ‘Veritas’ - ‘Truth’ : and in these days when everything we hold dear in the Catholic faith is under attack from all directions - even tragically, from inside the Church - staunch and articulate upholders of the Faith are more urgently needed than ever.

Please pray that these excellent young men will uphold the reputation of S. Dominic’s sons, and so live their Faith, and preach the Truth, that the Church may be defended and extended through their ministry : and if you happen to be within reach of Oxford, I think you may be sure of a warm welcome at the Ordination.
