PLYMOUTH DIOCESAN ARCHIVES

Dear Friends, here is another exposé to whet your appetite for what the Diocesan Archives hold on our behalf to preserve our Ecclesiastical Heritage in the South West. Pictures depict the beauty of an artefact but does not illustrate the complete information. The size and the weight of the items to be highlighted here can only be guessed at! We have a magnificent small collection of Bishops’ Pectoral Crosses and Rings.

Bishop John Keily wore the pectoral cross on the (middle left), and the (middle centre) was the favourite of Bishop John Barrett.

Bishop Charles Graham’s Pectoral Cross (middle right) was a heavy pendant containing many relics, with the reverse as beautiful as the front, depicting Our Lady.

Finally we are privileged to have a very precious Pectoral Cross of Cardinal Wiseman (1802-1865) first Archbishop of Westminster (bottom image) upon the reestablishment of the Catholic hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850.

We also have his beautiful gold Roman chasuble (Shh! Don’t tell Westminster) I hope you have enjoyed this mini-series highlighting only a small collection of what we really hold in the Diocesan Archives. Many blessings to all

Sr Benignus

Plymouth Diocesan Archivist

Season of Creation 2022

The burning bush is the symbol for this year’s Season of Creation which runs from 1 September until the Feast of St Francis of Assisi on 4 October. The recent prevalence of wildfires and the hot and dry summer are signs of the devastating effects that climate change is having on the most vulnerable of our planet. Creation cries out as forests burn and people and animals are forced to migrate. However, the fire that called to Moses as he tended the flock on Mount Horeb did not consume or destroy the bush. This flame of the Spirit revealed God’s presence. In this Season of Creation, this symbol of God’s Spirit calls us to listen to the voice of creation and consider how we can be good stewards of the earth’s valuable resources. You can find materials for prayer and reflection on the Diocesan website. There is also an opportunity for everyone to share ideas about what more we can do care for our common home through an online survey. https://www.plymouth-diocese.org.uk/the-diocese/how-we-work/environment/season-of-creation/
