St. John Fisher & St. Thomas More

Jun 22, 2011

Today we celebrate the feast of two of the great English Martyrs. You can read more about them at this link.

At Mass this evening I mentioned the play A Man for All Seasons by Robert Bolt. This is a wonderful account of the story of Thomas’ More’s fidelity to God as known in his well-informed and highly developed conscience. This inspiring drama was also produced as a successful movie.

You might appreciate (as I have) some of the quotations from the play.
