Extraordinary Priest

This could only happen to the extraordinary Fr. Nicholas Schofield in London: first he goes out to visit Catholics in Dubai of all places, next thing you know he’s attending a requiem for the Cardinal Duke of York, last of the rightful Stuart Catholic monarchs of England, then he finally makes it home to find an African cardinal turns up on his doorstep for a cup of tea.

Here he is at a celebration of the Mass of Bl. John XXIII. Front row left. Yes, that is the mysterious Fr. Whinder on the right.

    Alas, Fr Whinder has asked us to respect his privacy and not to make him quite so famous in the blogosphere.

    Even though blogging tends to make you focus on the extraordinary, priestly life is indeed full of surprises!

    The Royal Stuart Requiem, which I organised, was also in the ancient Roman rite – a rite which the Cardinal-King would himself have used and loved, just as many young Catholics and clergy do today and as our Pope, Benedict XVI, also does.James.
