Discovery – David Clayton, artist and lecturer at Thomas More College of Liberal Arts

At lunch today, I discovered David Clayton, artist and lecturer at Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, where he also blogs.

In addition to a meaningful contribution of Clayton Psalm Tones, Clayton writes on a variety of interesting and evocative subjects.

Clayton also writes for The Newman Society, where he recently contributed some thoughts on Catholic higher education:

[Sacred liturgy] is a school of love that perfects our social relations and our family life and by this society as whole. Accordingly, where there is concern for sacred liturgy there is also concern for the poor.”

Clayton proposes that a liberal Catholic education, therefore, is “directed towards deepening our active participation in the liturgy” – keeping in mind Bishop Sample’s warning not to instrumentalise the liturgy, for ‘Liturgy is not a means to pedagogy or evangelisation although these are the fruits.’
