    Over 60 relics and artefacts bring to life the courageous witness of a great man in a special exhibit, God’s Servant First: The Life and Legacy of Thomas More. This original exhibition features treasures from the Stonyhurst College Collections in England and is available to view only at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine.

    Some of the featured items include the following: a hat used by St. Thomas More; a religious garment embroidered by Katherine of Aragon, the wife of King Henry VIII; a monumental woodblock print by the German artist Albrecht Dürer; a first folio by William Shakespeare; the pectoral cross and saddle chalice that belonged to John Carroll, the first Catholic bishop in the United States; and first-class relics of Saints Thomas More and John Fisher.

    The exhibit is open daily until March 31, 2017.

    I did a report on St Thomas More in 7th grade :rolleyes:. I had no idea at the time he would end up being so relevant today.:(

    I think today many people have so lost touch with what Catholicism is and stands for. It is from poor (read that "No") catechesis. Great Saints like St. Thomas More being a good example. If he walked into a modern Church today he would probably assume it was some sort of Protestant "celebration". If you told him it was a Catholic Mass he would probably not believe you. If you told him tomorrow the Catholic Church is co-celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther and his revolution he would probably keel over.
