    You can read Bishop Paprocki's homily here.  
    He preached about St. Thomas More's famous last words - "I am the King's good servant, but God's first" - being a model of how we should act.  We should be engaged in the world while keeping our eyes fixed on heaven.  Bishop Paprocki voiced that the three core issues needing the faithful's continued engagement are life, marriage, and religious liberty.  He warned that the sin of acedia (a form of spiritual apathy) is the biggest obstacle to our engaging society on these issues.  Friendship with God overcomes acedia, which is the absence or rejection of that friendship.

    The One Thomas More by Travis Curtright answers the revisionist historians who have challenged St. Thomas More's legacy and painted him as a ruthless, stubborn, religious fanatic.  This book is as timely as it is important, as BBC is planning to air a miniseries based on the novel Wolf Hall, which has been characterized as a Da Vinci Code version of the story of Henry VIII, More, and Thomas Cromwell.
