THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING 3rd JULY 2022: FEAST OF ST THOMAS THE APOSTLE, THE 3rd SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

“If we lived in a state where virtue was profitable, common sense would make us saintly. But since we see that avarice, anger, pride and stupidity commonly profit far beyond charity, modesty, justice and thought, perhaps we must stand fast a little, even at the risk of being heroes.”

Thomas More (lawyer, philosopher, author, statesman, and humanist, 1478-1535), quoted here: https://www.azquotes.com/quote/538932

On 6th July the Church remembers in its prayers Thomas More and John Fisher, who were martyred during the Henrician Reformation in 1535.
