Sit with me at my desk and listen with me to my clients’ tales. Read with me in my library and stand always beside me so that today I shall not, to win a point, lose my soul. Pray that my family may find in me what yours found in you: friendship and courage, cheerfulness and charity, diligence in duties, counsel in adversity, patience in pain ———— their good servant, and God’s first.

For a bit of history, Saint Thomas More is actually the patron saint of lawyers. He had led a very noble and distinguished life. At one point, he even known as King Henry’s intellectual courtier, as well as his secretary and confidant. However, there came a tragic turning point where he had to stand on what was right, and he was accused then of treason for his firm stand on righteousness. If there is any person that any lawyer would want to emulate, then it should be Saint Thomas More’s.
