Old Catholic England (CTS -Mark Elvins)

Touching Wood

this saying has remained popular. It of course originated from the touching of  the wood of the True Cross, the most prized relic. Many a Catholic would venerate such a relic before setting out on a hazardous task.  Today most people are satisfied with touching any piece of wood as a substitute. By tradition the wood of the Cross  was from the aspen tree, which is why it always trembles.

Major Rogation, 25 April; Minor Rogation, May 27, 28, and 29 - days of fast

"Rogation" comes from the Latin "rogare," which means "to ask," and "Rogation Days" are days during which we seek to ask God's mercy, appease His anger, avert His chastisements manifest through natural disasters, and ask for His blessings, particularly with regard to farming, gardening, and other agricultural pursuits.

They are set aside to remind us how radically dependent we are on mother Earth, and how prayer can help protect us from nature's often cruel ways.  ..." …

The prayer of Jabez

Eternal Father, 

please open the window of Heaven

and pour us out Your blessing

so great,

that there isn't enough room for us to receive it all.

I pray that You would bless us indeed,

extend our territories

and that Your Hand may be with us

to keep us from evil

that we may not cause harm.

O most holy Virgin who didst find favor in God’s sight and hast become His Mother;

O Virgin, immaculate in body and soul, in thy faith and in thy love, look down with pity on the wretched who in our need seek thy powerful protection.

The evil serpent on whom was cast the primal curse continues, alas, to attack and…

Prayer to Saint Barbara for protection against storm, hurricane, all sorts of struggle, and war

Prayer to Saint Barbara


St Barbara,

you are stronger than the tower of a fortress

and the fury of hurricanes.

Do not let lightning hit me, thunder frighten me

or the roar of canons jolt my courage or bravery.

Stay always by my side so that I may confront

all the storms and battles of my life

with my head held high and a serene…

Oxford Visit

I just came back from Oxford (I'm attending some lectures - The Great Ruins: Six English Medieval Abbeys in Context) Quite interesting but I read out that the general public can still attend lectures and classes (not tutorials) really cheaply - Basically you could study full time using Oxford University free / min cost Lectures and classes - cool for students taking a year out I thought...Especially if you wanted to learn beginner Latin and Greek or Medieval Philosophy, Logic, Metaphysics…
