This week we were privileged to have some lectures on the liturgy by Mr. John Meehan. Mr. Meehan came to our monastery last July for some lectures on the social encyclicals, which we enjoyed so much we invited him back! Mr. Meehan is one of the founders of Magdalen College (now known as the College of St. Mary Magdalen) and also its second President. He presented a kind of theology of liturgy for us which was very enlightening and helpful for understanding the new translations of the Mass which will be used beginning in Advent this year.
Mr. Meehan's spirited lecturing and interesting content kept us all attentive!
