Cranmer Remembered

Behold, on this day 451 years ago, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer was martyred by Queen Mary for his reformed position. Cranmer was the man behind the Book of Common Prayer of 1549, and also the 1552 revision, and was Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII, Edward VII and Mary.

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15)
