Thomas Arundel
Birth: 1353
Death: Feb. 20, 1414

Archbishop of Canterbury. He was Archbishop of Canterbury in 1397 and again from 1397 to 1399. He vehemently opposed the Lollards which were a political and reglious group who were in favour of the common people. Arundel insisted that the church publications should be in Latin, which meant that the common man could not understand them. The Catholic Church was fearful of the Lollards which lead Arundel to direct a backlash against them. He crowned King Henry IV in 1399. In 2006, he was recently voted as the 9th worst Britain of the last 1000 years. (bio by: s.canning)

As I look at these stones, many express Hope in the Resurrection of the bodies of the Saints by the Lord Jesus, when He returns. Do not be Left behind at the Rapture. Read 1 Thessalonians 4 v13-18; in your Holy Bible.

There is no man who hath control over the spirit to retain the spirit: and no one hath control over the day of death. Ecc. 8
