Prayers of St Thomas More
A guide for the conscience.
More penned many prayers while in his cell in the Tower, perhaps the most moving being those written during the five days between his condemnation and execution. These, together with a description of his final days and execution written by his son-in law William Roper, are set out in this booklet. More’s reflections on the Holy Eucharist and on Christ’s Passion are also included, as well as Pope Benedict XVI’s incisive assessment of More and the relationship between politics and faith, delivered in Westminster Hall in September 2010.
