A few words by Erasmus of Rotterdam on this Feast day of Saint Thomas More & Saint John Fisher.
Words which touch my. After the news of Thomas More’s execution reached him in Basel, he wrote:
“First William Warham, Archbishop of Canterbury, then of late Mountjoy, and Fisher of Rochester, and Thomas More, Lord Chancellor of England, whose soul was more pure than any snow, whose genius was such as England never had - yea, and never shall have again, mother of good wits though England be.” A few days later he wrote to a friend: “In More’s death I seem to have died myself; we had but one soul between us.” .
