Saint Thomas Becket

December 29

Saint Thomas BecketGracious Father, Saint Thomas was famed for his opulence and his status as the most powerful man in England second only to the king.  Everything changed when he became a priest to be consecrated archbishop.  He completely turned his life around and began to live piously.  He was soon opposing the king to defend the Church’s rights.  I ask him to pray for the conversion of our politicians today.  O Lord, give them motivation to turn away from the love of money, power and prestige and to begin serving Your kingdom much more than their earthly domains.  Forgive them their sins and lead them to heaven.  Saint Thomas, pray for us.  Amen.
