Ash Wednesday audio reflection

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

This Lent the student brothers will be offering short audio reflections on Wednesdays throughout the Lenten season. Today, Br Albert Robertson, OP, begins our recordings with a reflection for this day, Ash Wednesday.



 

Br Albert Elias Robertson O.P.

Br Albert Elias was born in Surrey and went to university at the London School of Economics, where he read Social Anthropology before going to Oxford, where he read for an MPhil in Material Anthropology. After studies, he had a propaedeutic year in three Anglican parishes in north London. He became a Catholic in 2013 and worked for a short time in London living at St Patrick’s Soho before entering the noviciate in 2015. Br Albert helps to run the Thomistic Institute and so has an interest in promoting the theology of St Thomas as well as Patristics. In his spare time he likes to read novels [lots]. | albert.robertson@english.op.org
