“Most would understand the phrase that the mind of More was like a diamond that a tyrant threw away into a ditch, because he could not break it.” — G.K. Chesterton
Today is the feast day of St. Thomas More, a man martyred not to political ambition — but to the honor of God.
“Be not afraid of your office.”
If more politicians honored that than ideology, ambition, ease, or position then this world would be a far better place. May the life and example of St. Thomas More continue to inspire those in public service, elected and otherwise.
