Monday 4 February                Gilbert of Sempringham, founder Gilbertine Order,
                                 1083-1189
Founded a religious community on the Lancashire estate which he inherited. It began
with seven nuns who followed the Benedictine Rule. Then came some brothers who
followed the Cistercian Rule and when priests were added they were Augustinian canons.
So the Order, approved by the Pope was an amalgam of three distinct monastic
traditions. Other houses were established in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, and by the time
of the dissolution of the monasteries there were twenty five Gilbertine monasteries in
England and one in Scotland. It was the only distinctively English Order in the history of
Latin monasticism.

SUNDAY 10 February          1st Sunday of Lent
Anglican      Diocese of Matana (Province of Burundi), Archbishop Bernard
Communion     Ntahoturi (Archbishop of the Province and Bishop of Matana),
              clergy and people.
              The Church of the Province of Burundi had its first bishop in 1965. In
              1985 the President expelled expatriate missionaries, imprisoned many
              church leaders and re-possessed much church property. The present
              government has changed this policy and it became an independent
              Province in 1992. But it is a minority church in a predominantly
              Roman Catholic nation. It is a dangerous country and some priests and
              pastors have been killed. The population is almost 6 million.
              Christians form 85% (RC’s 65%; Anglicans and Protestants 20%).
              There are 300,000 Anglicans, 5 Dioceses, 170 priest and 150 parishes.

Thursday 14 February            a) Cyril 827-869 & Methodius 815-884,
                                   missionaries
                                b) Valentine, martyr at Rome c.269
Cyril and Methodius: two brothers who had great linguistic skills. Cyril led a mission to
the Ukraine, invented what is now known as Cyrillic script for the Slavonic language, and
began to translate the Bible. Methodius, at one time governor of a Slav colony, in 862
went, with Cyril to the Christian Duke of Moravia but came into conflict with Western
missionaries from Bavaria. Pope Hadrian II supported Cyril and Methodius rather than
the Bavarian bishops and ordained Methodius who was a layman and the brothers’
Slavonic liturgy was celebrated in churches in Rome. The brothers are regarded as
patrons of ecumenism between East and West.
Valentine: traditionally a day for lovers, but this association may be connected with the
Roman festival of Lupercalia when boys drew the names of girls in honour of the goddess
Februaro Juno (another example of a Christian takeover of a pagan festival). Chaucer
suggested that birds mated on this day. It is now generally accepted that Valentine was
either a priest of Rome who was executed outside Rome after a life of teaching and
healing or a bishop of Terni, north of Rome, who was imprisoned and executed there, or
most probably, both accounts are of the same martyr.

Friday 15 February              a) Sigfrid, died 1045
                                b) Thomas Bray, priest, 1658-1730, founder of
                                   SPCK & SPG
Sigfrid: was sent to Scandinavia as a missionary bishop after the death of Anskar whose
work had been destroyed by heathen tribes but when the King of Norway, Olaf
Tryggveson, visited England and became a Christian, the time seemed ripe for rebuilding
his work. Sigfrid may have been an Anglo-Saxon monk of Glastonbury but may also have
been of Danish stock. King Olaf’s death meant that little was achieved in Norway but
Sigfrid established a missionary basis in Sweden and established a monastery at Vaxjo
before extending his work into Denmark. He is commemorated as the apostle of Sweden
and Denmark and both countries remained in Communion with Rome until the
Reformation.
Thomas Bray: a yeoman’s son, from the Welsh borders, educated at Oswestry Grammar
School and a poor scholar at All Souls, Oxford. Ordained 1681-82, became chaplain to
Sir Thomas Price of Park Hall, near Castle Bromwich, becoming Vicar of Sheldon in
1690. In 1696 he was appointed Commissary for Maryland, America. He said he needed
books and with four other Diocesan bishops promoted a scheme “to propagate Christian
knowledge” (the title of SPCK derives from this statement). Bray came back to England
to raise money and get official recognition for SPG, whilst ministering at Sheldon and St
Boldph’s, Aldgate until his death in 1730.

Polycarp, bishop of Smyrna, learned directly from John the Evangelist. He became
bishop in about 107 and was noted for his defence of the Christian faith against the
Gnostics. He was much given to peace and reconciliation and travelled to Rome to try to
heal the breach between the Eastern and Western churches. He died in one of the riots
stirred up by Roman governors against Christians, having first refused to sacrifice to the
Roman gods for which refusal he was killed by a sword-thrust.
