A Man for All Seasons

It is the Feast of St. Thomas More, and so we watched A Man for All Seasons tonight in memory of this great servant of Christ and man of England. It's an extraordinary film, and I highly recommend it.
The Duke of Norfolk: Oh confound all this. I'm not a scholar, I don't know whether the marriage was lawful or not but dammit, Thomas, look at these names! Why can't you do as I did and come with us, for fellowship!

Sir Thomas More: And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?

May we all come with St. Thomas More into God's presence, for fellowship.
