St. Thomas Becket (1118-1170)

Thomas was a civil and canon lawyer, as well as an officer in the military. He was made the Archbishop of Canterbury the day after he was ordained a priest. For opposing the King's interference in ecclesiastical matters, he was exiled several times, then martyred.

"For our sake Christ offered himself to the Father upon the altar for the cross. He now looks down from heaven on our actions and secret thoughts, and one day he will give each of us the reward his deeds deserve." - St. Thomas Becket
