Scholarship at the Cathedral – Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP

March 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Eucharist as our Sacrament of Hope.

Ordained in 1971, Fr Radcliffe was the master of the Order of Preachers from 1992-2001, and has held a range of prestigious academic positions, including ex-officio grand chancellor of the Angelicum in Rome and director of the Las Casas institute at Blackfriars, Oxford.

He was awarded an honorary doctorate by Oxford University in 2003, and in 2007 was awarded the Michael Ramsey Prize for theological writing for his book What is the Point of Being a Christian?

He was named by Pope Francis to be spiritual advisor to the Synod on Synodality last year, where he preached on the need to overcome differences and factionalism.

“We may be divided by different hopes,” he told the delegates. “But if we listen to the Lord and to each other, seeking to understand his will for the Church and the world, we shall be united in a hope that transcends our disagreements.”
