P.S. Moore, or More More

My apologies, as it occurs to me that not everyone would know who Thomas Moore is. That is Saint Thomas Moore, from the 15th century, hence the prophetic words quoted in the previous post. To provide information, with credit to Thomas More – Wikipedia:

Sir Thomas More (7 February 1478 – 6 July 1535), venerated in the Catholic Church as Saint Thomas More,[7][8] was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman, and noted Renaissance humanist. He also served Henry VIII as Lord High Chancellor of England from October 1529 to May 1532.[9] He wrote Utopia, published in 1516,[10] which describes the political system of an imaginary island state. He had died before it was published.

The play, A Man For All Seasons was about Sir Thomas. He ultimately met his end (as did many) at the hands of King Henry VIII’s executioner. It should be noted that his last name was spelled both ways: More and Moore.
