VIGNETTES ON SAINTS




 

 

ST. THOMAS MORE

 

St. Thomas More did not present his opinion on King Henry VIII's planned divorce when personally asked by the king himself.  Writing to a nun who kept on expressing her opinion on the King's plan without being asked, he stated:  "I would advise you not to express your opinions on such matters as pertaining to kingly affairs or to the state of the nation.  But talk only of such things that are profitable to your soul and the souls of others."
