Description

St. Thomas More is best known for opposing King Henry VIII’s separation from the Catholic Church and his divorce of Catherine. For this opposition he was executed for refusing to acknowledge Henry as the supreme leader of the new Anglican church.

But more than this witness of staying true to the Catholic Church, Thomas was a lawyer, and judge, and a devoted father, deeply invested in his children’s education, both his son and daughters equally, which made an impression on the other nobles who knew him.

His best friend, Erasmus, reflected, “Did nature ever invent anything kinder, sweeter or more harmonious than the character of Thomas More?” He was “born and designed for friendship; no one is more open-hearted in making friends or more tenacious in keeping them.”

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
