Academic Mass - 12 October 2009

Thursday, October 15, 2009
The academic year at Blackfriars began with a votive Mass of the Holy Spirit and Vespers. It is very apt to begin the year by asking the Holy Spirit to fill us with wisdom and understanding, to enlighten our minds and to aid our studies in the year to come. It is also a good opportunity for the new students to meet each other and the friars. In his homily, the Regent of Studies, fr Richard Finn, pointed out that the close proximity of the church and the library at Blackfriars is no coincidence since the practice of religion and academic study are closely linked and complementary as they all point to the truth and to Truth itself.
