      A book by some heretic, which had just been printed, was brought to More and he read it as he was been rowed along the Thames from his house in Chelsea to the city of London. Bishop Tunstall, however, had no hesitation in asking More to take on the task of refuting all heretical works. We must act with caution and care in whatever we do. He had a sense of personal integrity which was incapable of being undermined, because he always acted with the highest motives even when the consequences were to cause him to be deprived of his just rights both for himself and his family, and, ultimately of his life.

      My Jave friends also saw them and we all counted them. But by his acts of a mercy and abundant provision he sought to convince, convict, and even shame them, but not kill them vss. The reply of the bishops did not satisfy Henry and they were asked to reconsider the matter. When they discovered that I believed in eternal security, they were astonished.

      The papacy he knew was very different from the papacy we know and respect today. It was the private choice, by an individual, of a doctrine contradictory to that held to be clearly revealed by the divinely guided society to which that individual had belonged. This they did. In the end More decided that his vocation was to find God, not in a monastery, but in the sanctifcation of those talents for law and literature, friendship and human love, which he had to such an extraordinary degree. When they discovered that I believed in eternal security, they were astonished.
