Yesterday was the Feast of St Thomas of Canterbury, Martyr. The location of his shrine in Canterbury Cathedral which was desecrated by King Henry VIII is known by Catholics as the big hole, so vacant and desolate does it now seem where once pilgrims thronged. Not many of the tourists in the Cathedral know of the martyrdom or its implications. And the Church of England guides won't be about to explain it.
