St. Thomas More: Putting God First

'I am the King's good servant but God's first!'
St. Thomas More (1478 – 1535) was a lawyer, statesman and friend of King Henry VIII of England. He was once the Lord Chancellor, one of the most important positions in the court. He was a holy and faithful person, and a good husband and father. When King Henry went against the Catholic Church, St. Thomas and many others, including the Bishop St. John Fisher, refused to join the King. As a result, they were executed. St. Thomas More’s feast day is on June 22.
