Obscure Saint of the Day: Blessed Thomas Percy

Good morning everybody!

Happy feast of Blessed Thomas Percy!


Thomas had originally maintained a great relationship with the various Queens of England during his day, but after participating in the Rising of the North, he fled to Scotland. 

Eventually, he was sold for 2,000 pounds to Queen Elizabeth.

Despite spending years in prison, he never recanted his faith, and for that he was beheaded in 1572 at York.

St. Thomas Percy, pray for us.
