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.

A pilgrim and way-farer, a searcher for Truth on the journey of Life... "Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine, There’s always laughter and good red wine. At least I’ve always found it so. Benedicamus Domino!" - Hilaire Belloc

Coming Soon to a Bookstore Near You: LEO!

So far, Leo our priory cat has been seen on the internet via this blog and the Priory website. Thanks to the latter, a photographer called Richard Surman, expressed an interest in Leo as a candidate for his latest book, 'Cloister Cats', a sequel to his earlier books on 'religious' cats.

So today he came for the appointed photography session (above, in our garden) and Leo behaved impeccably, showing off his natural beauty and docile nature. I look forward to the publication of this book next year which will include anecdotes and stories told by the cat's minders and take Leo's image to good bookshops everywhere!

It's not FAIR that you can have a cat and we can't!

Let's just say that this is the highlight of the year for him... until the book is published!
