Thomas Beckett did not want sainthood but several of Henry II nobles decide to do what the king dare not and that was to kill Beckett. They did it, on or about 1170 BCE, on the high alter at Canterbury Cathedral,and Beckett, along with the kings help, was made a saint by the pope. On his death-bed the king denied any order to have Beckett kill. The murders were never found. It is rumored that Beckett's bloody ghhost can be seen kneeling at the high altar. Some stories say one can witness the murder itself, played over and over during certain cycles of the full moon
The ghost of St. Thomas has also been seen at the Tower of London. It is fitting as he was once the Constable of the Tower. :ghost:

Nice to be back. Wonder who I made "ill" with me back in 2009...at 67 am lucky to recall what I had for dinner 2 days ago. Guess some folks will have to explain it to me as I have no clue.
