St Thomas More is our Patron Saint; he is also the Patron Saint of lawyers and politicians and a martyr.
St Thomas More was a close adviser to King Henry VIII and a very clever man, but most of all he was a devout Catholic. When Henry VIII wanted to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and part ways with the Catholic Church, Thomas More wouldn’t agree to it.
St Thomas More was given a choice between renouncing the Catholic Church and everything he believed in, or being sentenced to death. He chose to remain strong in his faith and was beheaded.
St Thomas More is an example to us that, even when times get tough, it is important to do the right thing and to maintain our faith in God.
