Saint John Fisher was a very intelligent man. He came to be known as a reputable writer and preacher. However, he had spoken out against the king at that time, declaring the king’s divorce and the claim that the king is the supreme head as invalid. He rather believed that the English church was the supreme head. This angered the king and soon because of the actions of Saint John Fisher he was put on trial and executed.
Dear God, Just as Saint John Fisher was loyal to the English church, help us to be loyal to our catholic church and fulfill our duties as a Christian with joy and dedication. Amen.
