Quote from St. Thomas Becket

St. Thomas Becket Stained Glass Window in Canterbury Cathedral

St. Thomas Becket – Stained Glass Window in Canterbury Cathedral

“Remember then how our fathers worked out their salvation; remember the sufferings through which the Church has grown, and the storms the ship of Peter has weathered because it has Christ on board. Remember how the crown was attained by those whose sufferings gave new radiance to their faith. The whole company of saints bears witness to the unfailing truth that without real effort no one wins the crown.” (St. Thomas Becket, Bishop and Martyr;Feast – December 29).
