Saint of the Week

June 22—JOHN FISHER (1469-1535) and THOMAS MORE (1478-1535) were men of great integrity and staunch defenders of the Church during the reign of King Henry VIII of England.
Fisher, a Yorkshireman and priest, was a renowned preacher and teacher.  He later became chancellor of Cambridge University and bishop of Rochester.  More, a Londoner, was an outstanding humanist, lawyer, and family man.  His greatest work was Utopia, and he later became chancellor of England under his friend the king.
Both Fisher and More refused to support King Henry’s attempt to coerce the Church into granting him a divorce from his queen, Catherine of Aragon.  Their fate was sealed by refusing to swear to Henry’s Act of Supremacy, by which the king rejected the pope’s authority and claimed royal control of the Church in England.  Fisher and More were martyred by the king on June 22, 1535 and July 6, 1535, respectively.  More is the patron of lawyers, statesmen, and politicians.
