Saint Thomas More - Martyr
Saint Thomas More, born in 1480, was the precocious and amiable son of an English magistrate. Saint Thomas came under suspicion by King Henry VII when he strove in the Parliament to reduce the burden of excessive taxes which the people bore. He was beheaded in 1535. He was beatified by Pope Leo XIII and canonized by Pius XI in 1935.
