All Saints Day Memories

Our grandchildren participate in All Saints Day parades each year. This year as a recognition for their hard work in researching saints and helping to make the costumes to wear for the annual parade, we gave each of the three a 4x5 plaque of the saint they chose. They were all thrilled and excited to display these icons in their prayer corner at home. These make great children's gifts of patron saints for annual Baptism Days as well.

A wonderful icon - sits on my desk at work (I am a civil servant) - a reminder to do my work well but to keep Christ first, then all will be well...

St. Thomas More

St. Thomas More

St. Thomas More was an English lawyer, member of parliament, and Lord Chancellor in the 16th century under King Henry VIII. Because of his strongly held positions regarding marriage and the authority of religion over that of the state, he was convicted of treason and martyred in 1535. His is patron of lawyers.

St. Thomas More was born at London in 1478. After a thorough grounding in religion and the classics, he entered Oxford to study law. Upon leaving the university he embarked on a legal career which took him to Parliament. In 1505, he married Jane Colt who bore him four children, and when she died at a young age, he married a widow, Alice Middleton, to be a mother for his young children. A wit and a reformer, this learned man numbered Bishops and scholars among his friends, and by 1516 wrote his world-famous book "Utopia".

He attracted the attention of Henry VIII who appointed him to a succession of high posts and missions, and finally made him Lord Chancellor in 1529. However, he resigned in 1532, at the height of his career and reputation, when Henry persisted in holding his own opinions regarding marriage and the supremacy of the authority of religion over that of the state. The rest of his life was spent in writing mostly in defense of the Church.

In 1534, with his close friend, St. John Fisher, he refused to render allegiance to the King as the Head of the Church of England and was confined to the Tower. Fifteen months later, and nine days after St. John Fisher's execution, he was tried and convicted of treason. He told the court that he could not go against his conscience and wished his judges that "we may yet hereafter in heaven merrily all meet together to everlasting salvation." And on the scaffold, he told the crowd of spectators that he was dying as "the King's good servant-but God's first." He was beheaded on July 6, 1535. His feast day is June 22nd.
