CNA STAFF, Jun 20, 2010 / 05:08 am (CNA).- This Tuesday marks the feast day of St. Thomas More – husband, father, lawyer, politician and the first layman to serve as Lord Chancellor of England. St. Thomas is best known for being a devout and faithful Catholic whose staunch defense of the rights of conscience and unshakeable fidelity to the Church’s teachings - most notably the indissolubility of marriage and the supremacy of the pope – cost him his life.
Thomas More was born in London in 1478. As a young man, he was quick to show his brilliant mind, quick wit and dedication to the service of truth. His intellectual passion took him to Oxford and London to study law and letters, where he excelled and was well noted for his eloquence and moral integrity. Less well known was the rigorous asceticism which he practiced all his life, and his detachment from success and wealth.
During his youth, he considered entering a religious order, either the Carthusians or the Franciscans, but with the help of his confessor, he finally discerned that his calling was to the married life.
In 1505, Thomas married Jane Colt. They had four children, whom they raised with great care. Jane died in 1511, and Thomas later married widow Alice Middleton.
Thomas had been active in political life since his 1504 election to parliament. With a glowing reputation for learning and integrity, he quickly advanced, becoming Lord Chancellor in 1529.
It was in his post as chancellor that he was to encounter the great trial of his life, in which he was faced with the choice between his conscience or his security.
King Henry VIII wished to be rid of his wife, Catherine of Aragon, because she could not bear him an heir, but the Pope would not annul the marriage. Therefore, in 1532, parliament passed the Act of Supremacy, which recognized the king as the head of the Church of England.
Thomas resigned that same year. Not willing to betray his conscience and the Church, he refused to sign the Act. He was forced into a life of poverty and abandonment by many of his old friends. However, not wishing to provoke his own martyrdom, he maintained total silence over the question of supremacy.
To the public, this silence was seen as an eloquent denunciation of Henry's actions. So in 1534, the king had Thomas imprisoned in the Tower of London in an effort to coerce him to take the oath. Thomas did not waver and was subsequently tried for high treason.
When the court condemned him on false evidence, he finally broke his silence, affirming his belief in the indissolubility of marriage, the supremacy of the pope, and the inviolable freedom of the Church in her relation with the state.
Thomas was beheaded on July 6, 1535, with his now famous last words expressing his devotion to both his country and his faith: “I have been ever the king’s good and loyal servant, but God’s first.”
He was canonized in 1935 by Pope Pius XI and named “The Martyr of the Papacy.”
Pope John Paul II declared St. Thomas More patron of statesmen and politicians on October 31, 2000, noting “the witness which he bore, even at the price of his life, to the primacy of truth over power.”
The Holy Father pointed to holiness as the key to the saint’s life and martyrdom:
“His profound detachment from honors and wealth, his serene and joyful humility, his balanced knowledge of human nature and of the vanity of success, his certainty of judgment rooted in faith: these all gave him that confident inner strength that sustained him in adversity and in the face of death. His sanctity shone forth in his martyrdom, but it had been prepared by an entire life of work devoted to God and neighbor.”

Sir Thomas More (February 7, 1478[1]– July 6, 1535), also known as Saint Thomas More, was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, and statesman. He is also recognised as a saint within the Catholic Church. During his life he gained a reputation as a leading Renaissance humanist, an opponent of the Protestant Reformation of Martin Luther and for opposing William Tyndale and his translation of the Bible into the English language. For three years toward the end of his life he was Lord Chancellor.
More coined the word "utopia" - a name he gave to the ideal, imaginary island nation whose political system he described in Utopia, published in 1516. An important counsellor to Henry VIII of England, he was tried and executed for treason by beheading in 1535 for denying that the king was the Supreme Head of the Church of England, a title the king had been given by the Act of Supremacy of 1534. More had been in prison in the Tower of London since 1534 for his refusal to take the oath required by the First Succession Act, because the act disparaged the power of the Pope and Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon. More was beatified by the Catholic Church in 1886 and canonised, with John Fisher, in 1935. In 1980, he was added to the Church of England's calendar of saints.

BIOGRAFÍA

Santo Tomás Moro nació en Londres en 1477. Recibió una excelente educación clásica, graduándose de la Universidad de Oxford en abogacía. Su carrera en leyes lo llevó al parlamento. En 1505 se casó con su querida Jane Colt con quien tuvo un hijo y tres hijas. Jane muere joven y Tomás contrae nuevamente nupcias con una viuda, Alice Middleton.
Hombre de gran sabiduría, reformador, amigo de varios obispos.
En 1516 escribió su famoso libro "Utopía". Atrajo la atención del rey Enrique VIII quién lo nombró a varios importantes puestos y finalmente "Lord Chancellor", canciller, en 1529. En el culmen de su carrera Tomás renunció, en 1532, cuando el rey Enrique persistía en repudiar a su esposa para casarse, para lo cual el rey se disponía a romper la unidad de la Iglesia y formar la iglesia anglicana bajo su autoridad.
Santo Tomás pasó el resto de su vida escribiendo sobre todo en defensa de la Iglesia. En 1534, con su buen amigo el obispo y santo Juan Fisher, rehusó rendir obediencia al rey como cabeza de la iglesia. Estaba dispuesto a obedecer al rey dentro de su campo de autoridad que es lo civil pero no aceptaba su usurpación de la autoridad sobre la Iglesia. Tomás y el obispo Fisher se ayudaron mutuamente a mantenerse fieles a Cristo en un momento en que la gran mayoría cedía ante la presión del rey por miedo a perder sus vidas. Ellos demostraron lo que es ser de verdad discípulos de Cristo y el significado de la verdadera amistad. Ambos pagaron el máximo precio ya que fueron encerrados en La Torre de Londres. Catorce meses mas tarde, nueve días después de la ejecución de San Juan Fisher, Sto. Tomás fue juzgado y condenado como traidor. El dijo a la corte que no podía ir en contra de su conciencia y decía a los jueces que "podamos después en el cielo felizmente todos reunirnos para la salvación eterna"
Ya en el andamio para la ejecución, Santo Tomás le dijo a la gente allí congregada que el moría como "El buen servidor del rey, pero primero Dios" ("the King's good servant-but God's first"). Nos recuerda las palabras de Jesús: "Al Cesar lo que es del Cesar y a Dios lo que es de Dios." Fue decapitado el 6 de julio de 1535. Su fiesta es el 22 de junio.
Qué gran modelo es Santo Tomás Moro para todos, en especial para los políticos, gobernantes y abogados. Pidámosle que su valentía les inspire para mantenerse firmes e íntegros en la verdad sin guardar odios ni venganzas.
ORACION DE
SANTO TOMÁS MORO

Dios Glorioso, dame gracia para enmendar mi vida y tener presente mi fin sin eludir la muerte, pues para quienes mueren en Ti, buen Señor, la muerte es la puerta a una vida de riqueza.

Y dame, buen Señor, una mente humilde, modesta, calma, pacífica, paciente, caritativa, amable, tierna y compasiva en todas mis obras, en todas mis palabras y en todos mis pensamientos, para tener el sabor de tu santo y bendito espíritu.

Dame buen Señor, una fe plena, una esperanza firme y una caridad ferviente, un amor a Ti, muy por encima de mi amor por mí.

Dame, buen Señor, el deseo de estar contigo, de no evitar las calamidades de este mundo, no tanto por alcanzar las alegrías del cielo como simplemente por amor a Ti.

Y dame, buen Señor, Tu amor y Tu favor; que mi amor a TI, por grande que pueda ser, no podría merecerlo si no fuera por tu gran bondad. Buen Señor, dame Tu gracia para trabajar por estas cosas que te pido.
