Saint Josemaría celebrated Mass in England for the first time. After Mass, later that morning, he went to visit a students’ hall of residence, and there he wrote on the back of a photograph: “Sancta Maria, Sedes Sapientiae, filios tuos adiuva (Holy Mary, Seat of Wisdom, help your children); Oxford, Cambridge, 5-VIII-58”.
