We had a great weekend at Oscott for the Invocation festival which culminated in a visit from His Excellency Archbishop Antonio Mennini, the new Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain. The Archbishop presided at the closing Mass of the festival accompanied by Archbishop Bernard Longley, Bishop David McGough and Bishop Peter Doyle as well as over twenty secular and religious priests from all over the country.
This is the text of the Nuncio's sermon:
(I) Newman, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, Chapter 1
(2) St Augustine, Confessions, 1.1
(3) cf St Augustine, Confessions, X.xxvii
(4) Benedict XVI, Homily at Randwick Racecourse, Sydney, 20/7/08
(5) cf Luke 2:19, 2:51
(6) 2 Cor. 13:13
