Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Leo the Greater!

Today is the feast of Pope St Leo the Great


Here in Blackfriars Cambridge, we are also celebrating (yet) another day in honour of...

Leo the Greater!!

Yes, for the uninitiated, that is Leo, our Priory cat, a beautiful male Birman. His white fur looks beautiful against our white habits, especially when he is picked up and indulged (which he absolutely loves) but is a nightmare to get off our cappas!

Admittedly, not every friar is a devotee of the cat but this friar most certainly is. When the former Prior and the incumbent Prior are not available, Leo likes to spend the day sleeping in my room and on occasion even spends the night there... although he wakes me up at 4am to be let out!

He is a most affectionate cat and loves to have a fuss made over him and enjoys playing and being chased. All Hail, Leo the Greater!
