For some years now both myself and Lacrimarum Vallae have been brothers of the Little Oratory in Birmingham. This worthy institute is an association of laymen who meet for spiritual exercises every Tuesday, for recreation and for outings a few times a year. Most of us practice other lay vocations of our own particular states in life, and more recently blogging has become another one for some of us. It was partly being a brother of the Oratory I was started in this blogging enterprise, much against my original intentions!
But we are not the only Oratory bloggers: indeed among the Little Oratory of the London Oratory are a number as well. They are City up on a Hill, Emitte Lucem Tuam, Fr. Nicholas Schofield and Surge Illuminare. They are all worth giving a visit, coming in many shapes and sizes!
