Saint Thomas Becket

Our prayer today is one asking the Lord for the grace being a courageous witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The liturgical prayer (used at Mass) is found here.

Read Butler's life of Becket and/or the Catholic Encyclopedia article on the martyred archbishop.

I'm multi-media here at Communio blog, so I found a montage of scenes from the movie "Becket" (1964) with Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole creatively put together. The acting is superb, dress is stunning and the drama insightful.

You like to read the piece on transferral of Becket's relics here.
