Feast of St. Thomas of Canterbury, December 29
Today we commemorate St. Thomas Becket, also known as St. Thomas of Canterbury, martyred for his stand against civil powers usurping those of the Church. He is a relevant saint for our own day, when secular powers are undermining and taking away civil liberties, especially those pertaining to the Church and the exercise of religious freedom.
St. Thomas, pray for us, that we may remain faithful to God and His holy Church no matter what the cost!
