They Just Don’t Excommunicate People Like They Used To…

This is probably my favorite scene from the film Becket. Simply amazing. King Henry II had Archbishop Becket murdered inside the Cathedral and so the Church declared the king excommunicated. If you haven’t seen this movie, you need to do so as soon as possible. See the clip above.

“We do here now separate him from the body and blood of Christ and the society of all faithful Christians.
We exclude him from our Holy Mother Church and all her sacraments!”

Happy feast day of Saint Thomas Becket!
