Moments before Thomas More was martyred on July 6, 1535, he declared,
"I die the king's good servant, and God's first." Standing
upon the scaffold, he was confident in his following of Christ and knew he
had done everything in his power to ensure justice. It is in the spirit
of St. Thomas More that we strive to practice law in accordance with our
Catholic faith, remembering that "in Christ Jesus the life-giving law of the Spirit has set you free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:2).
