Gold and Hair shirts

Becket wore a hair shirt under his gold and crimson, and there is much to be said for the combination; for Becket got the benefit of the hair shirt while the people in the street got the benefit of the crimson and gold.

-GK Chesterton, Orthodoxy.

I couldn't believe it when I found out that St Thomas a Beckett had been voted one of the ten worst Englishmen to have ever lived - alongside people like Oswald Mosley no less!

"Faith of our fathers, Mary’s prayers
Shall win our country back to Thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
England shall then indeed be free."
