A 500th anniversary this week
Of an instrument of great evil who changed history. Before I started reading Christopher Haigh (thanks, Dr Tighe) I used to give him the benefit of the doubt but although he personally wasn’t a heretic the rot set in during his reign depending on what he wanted politically. No wonder English Protestantism fell so hard in the 1700s; we’re feeling the aftershocks.

Omnes sáncti mártyres, órate pro nóbis.
