Ave Maria!

Fra Solanus tells us about the life, labours and martyrdom of St. John Fisher: the great scholar who became Chancellor of Cambridge University; the holy priest who became confessor to Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII of England; the saintly Bishop of Rochester who became known all over Europe as the ‘Divine Prelate’; the defender of Holy Matrimony and the rights of Queen Catherine; the defender of the rights of the Church and Papal Supremacy against the tyrannical King Henry VIII; and who went to the executioner’s block just a couple of weeks before his friend St. Thomas More – both martyrs for the same good cause.
