Fr. John Hunwicke apparently received permission from Msgr. Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham to preach Oxford University’s Latin Sermon from Newman’s pulpit.
The text (I received along with it the paraphrase, which is not my rendering):

Read the full sermon in Latin (with an English "paraphrase") at the incomparable Fr. Z's blog What Does the Prayer Really Say?.
Salome non sine mentula - It just plopped through my door earlier in the year ... a leaflet inviting me to see a production of Oscar Wilde's Salome by the Royal Shakespeare Company....
