Text on the back of the card:
Saint Thomas More
Feast Day -- June 22
Saint Thomas More was a lawyer in England with an important job--Lord Chancellor. He was also an adviser and friend to King Henry VIII. Henry wanted Thomas to say that the king was the head of the Church in England, not the Pope. Thomas couldn't do that. Henry became so angry that he had Thomas beheaded. Thomas loved God so much he was willing to do the right thing even though he would be killed.
Patron of lawyers, politicians, and civil servants. Saint Thomas wrote a novel, Utopia which is still read today.
Give me the grace, Good Lord, to gladly to bear my purgatory here. To be joyful in tribulations. To walk the narrow way that leads to life. (Saint Thomas' prayer.)
