Lives of the Saints: Saint Thomas More

 

 

Saint-Thomas-MoreOn June 22nd, the Church celebrates the Feast Day of Saint Thomas More, a close advisor to King Henry VIII. When the king declared himself head of the Church in England, Thomas was called in to take an oath to follow Henry’s authority instead of the pope. When he refused, he was arrested and charged with treason. Saint Thomas More followed his conscience even though it meant that he had to give up a successful career, close friendships, and his own life.
