Wandering down the corridor of our office block, the Cardinal Knox Centre (affectionately called “The Bunker” for obvious reasons for anyone who has ever seen it), I bumped into no less a figure than Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez SDB! I had no idea he was even in town. We shook hands, and I was introduced, and of course, I thought of all the intelligent things I could have said and insightful questions I could have asked immediately AFTER the end of our brief conversation.
He is celebrating Eucharist at Newman College Chapel tomorrow night at 6pm, followed by a reception and conversation together with Dr Donna Orsuto on the theme “Deus Caritas Est: Sharing the Love of God in a World of Fear”. I can’t go (although I now have an invitation) as I will be on my way to the airport, but if you want an invite, I suggest you get in touch with Mark O’Connor ASAP.
Its getting like Vatican City around here!
