Master of the Order visits England

Saturday, July 02, 2011
The Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cadoré OP, visited England recently. As already reported, he met with the students at Blackfriars, Oxford and took part in the celebrations for the patronal feast on Pentecost Sunday. He also visited Cambridge which is the novitiate house of the province, and London where he met members of the community as well as meeting with the provincial council.

His visit was part of a whirlwind tour he is undertaking of parts of the Order less well known to him. In recent weeks he has been in the USA and Canada, in Ireland and England, in Belgium and the Netherlands, and in Spain.

One of fr Bruno's predecessors, Blessed Jordan of Saxony, wrote as follows to the friars of the Order, calling them to the essential heart of their way of living: 'We say a lot, we do a lot, we endure a tremendous lot, which would make us so much richer in virtue, so much more fruitful in merit, if only charity abounded in our hearts, directing and ordering everything towards our proper goal, which is God' (Letter of May 1233).
