St. Thomas Becket Stained Glass Window in Canterbury Cathedral[1]

St. Thomas Becket
Stained Glass Window in Canterbury Cathedral

St. Thomas Becket said this to a friend on his way to ordination: “Hereafter, I want you to tell me, candidly and in secret, what people are saying about me. And if you see anything in me that you regard as a fault, feel free to tell me in private. For from now on, people will talk about me, but not to me. It is dangerous for men in power if no one dares to tell them when they go wrong.” (St. Thomas Becket, Bishop and Martyr)

December 29 is the Optional Memorial of St. Thomas Becket, Bishop and Martyr (A.D. 1118 – 1170)
