Brother Thomas, you knew what it meant to be a practicing lawyer, and not just some canon lawyer. You had clients, you had to worry about billing, you spent nights writing briefs, you made appearances and argued your cases before a bench. Today, on your feast day, pray for me that I may emulate your ethics and bravery, as I go before a court of law in representation of a client. Let me not be brash or cynical but straightforward and true.
As with all things, I ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. (+)
