List of Prayers to the Saints 

Holy martyr for the Church, you used your talents to bring Godís love and mercy to earth.Yet you realized that human fame and glory were momentary and fleeting.

In your practice of law you understood and were loyal first to God's eternal law spoken through the successors of the Apostles.  While a servant of the king, you were a servant to the Church first.

Help me to see that loyalty to God's laws must be the first part of my ties and responsibilities with others.  Strengthen me to seek out what the Church teaches.  Give me the wisdom to make the right choice, and the fortitude to carry it out.  This I ask through Jesus Christ our Lord,  Amen.

Saint Thomas More, pray for me.
