PRAYER TO SAINT THOMAS MORE (For Lawyers And Judges)

Dear Scholar and Martyr,
it was not the King of England
but you who were the true Defender of the Faith.
Like Christ unjustly condemned,
neither promises nor threats could make you accept a civil ruler
as head of the Christian Church.
Perfect in your honesty and love of truth,
grant that lawyers and judges may imitate you
and achieve true justice for all people.

Amen.
