THE BABY AND THE BATH WATER – SAINT ANSELM'S MARGATE!!!
The resilience of Len, Thalia, John, Claire, Wijnand, Marion, Mary Goretti, as passionately exhorted by Anthony Chantry less than two years ago is tested to the limit. The Institute has to move to Rome and it is neither appropriate nor convenient to point a blaming finger. At best, it is divine providence at work; at worst it is the frightening and tightening of borders and computerised administration that needs to be more humane or Catholic. I cannot go into chatting about Divine Providence since I am neither qualified nor eloquent; nor can I speak with authority like Anne Widicombe and others in UK issues. This time I do it in song – two of the songs I wrote about the Institute on their 30th Anniversary two years ago. Long live the staff and resilience of St Anselm.
Saint Anselm The place of Renewal; 2. Saint Anselm the school by the sea (Tribute).
