St. Thomas More By: Emily Jenkins

Saint Thomas More stood up to the King and sacrificed his life for the Pope and for Jesus. He teaches us to stand up for our faith and he inspired many others during the reformation.

Saint Thomas More refused to acknowledge King Henry as the head of the Church.

St. Thomas More and Bishop John Fisher remained loyal to the Pope and trusted in the Lord.

Saint Thomas More was then imprisoned in the Tower of London by King Henry.

Finally St. Thomas More was beheaded more than a year after being put in the tower.

The Church can grow and learn from Saint Thomas More by learning about him and learning about how faithful he was to the Pope. He denied the King and was then martyred for doing that. He put God before anything else even his own life.
