I ought to perhaps explain that yesterday's observance of the Feast of the Patronage of St Philip was, in a sense, peculiar to the Oxford Oratory. Other Oratories keep the day, but on a day appropriate to them. Here in Oxford April 27th was chosen as that was the day in 1993 when this particular Oratory was formally approved and established by Rome.
This is a copy of the painting of St Philip by Guido Reni and is the work of Maria Giberne, who was one of Cardinal Newman's converts and one of his most ardent friends and supporters. The painting hangs over the altar in St Philip's Chapel in the Oxford Oratory.
