|About the St. Thomas More Society of San Diego |
The official mission statement of the St. Thomas More Society is as follows:
The St. Thomas More Society of San Diego is an association of Catholic attorneys, judges, public servants and others who work in or closely with the legal profession and the courts. We, the members of the St. Thomas More Society, find inspiration and solidarity in sharing in the Holy Eucharist, prayer and camaraderie at our regular monthly meetings and special functions. With St. Thomas More as our model and saintly inspiration, we are dedicated to integrating our Catholic Faith in all we do, and thereby we seek to apply and promote the core principles of our Catholic Faith in our daily lives, at home and at work, and, hence, in the legal community and the justice system at large.
Prayer to St. Thomas More
Thomas More, counselor of law and statesman of integrity, merry martyr and most human of saints:
Pray that, for the glory of God and in the pursuit of his justice, I may be trustworthy with confidences, keen in study, accurate in analysis, correct in conclusion, able in argument, loyal to clients, honest with all, courteous to adversaries, ever attentive to conscience. 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.
