The Fifth Day of Christmas

St. Thomas Becket

Bishop & Martyr

Sister Wendy Beckett of the Art books and video fame is his relative. !  I only knew this because of her video where she mentioned it.

Books:  Augustine Came to Kent,
Murder in the Cathedral, TS Eliot
Canterbury Tales
WebsiteThe Murder of Thomas Becket
Movie:  Becket - I don't have this one, we will settle for watching Sr. Wendy.

.-"Learn from St. Thomas," says Father Faber, "to fight the good fight even to the shedding of blood, or, to what men find harder, the shedding of their good name by pouring it out to waste on the earth."

Today, ask Saint Thomas to help us be courageous witnesses of the Catholic faith.
