Our Brothers and Sisters

St. Thomas More, Lord Chancellor of England, embraced a philosophy of compassion and equality. He was also a devout Catholic and a Secular Franciscan. When More stood up for the sanctity of marriage by opposing King Henry VIII's divorce of Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn, he was executed for being, in More's words, "the king's good servant - but God's first."

“We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.” -St. Francis of Assisi
