IN HONOR OF SAINT THOMAS BECKET ON HIS FEAST DAY: A MANLY ACT OF LOVE FOR AN ERRANT SINNER
This is a manly act of love, a great excommunication scene. The purpose of this manly act of love was to save the soul of King Henry II. It is a call to repentance and a return to the Full Communion of the Church:
“The last temptation is the greatest treason:
To do the right deed for the wrong reason.”
- Thomas Becket, in T S Eliot’s “Murder in the Cathedral”.
