Book of Saints – John Larke


(Blessed) Martyr (March 7) (16th century) A venerable priest, ordained at the beginning of the sixteenth century, and sometime Rector of Chelsea, where Blessed Thomas More had his residence. That Martyr’s death so wrought upon him that he too bravely underwent imprisonment and suffering for the same Sacred Cause, and at length laid down his life for the Faith (A.D. 1544).
