A long time ago - more than 400 years, in fact - there lived in far-off England a man who was not a great soldier, or a sea captain, or explorer but who was a real hero if there ever was one! He was St. John of Rochester and he is honored to this day as a very brave man! Here is why: he dared to say that the King of England was wrong! And in those days that was about the worst thing a man could do because everyone was supposed to believe that "The King can do no wrong!" However, King Henry VIII did do something that the people knew was wrong - yet no one dared to say it for fear of being punished as a traitor! No one, that is, except this John Fisher, the Bishop of Rochester. He dared! And in this little story Father Brenner tells you all about him - what he did and why he did it and what happened to him. You'll love this great and good man who had the courage to defy his earthly king because that king broke the laws of his heavenly King.
