Today in the Diocese of Clifton we sing the Mass of the Blessed Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury, cruelly murdered for her faith by Henry VIII. She is the mother of Cardinal Reginald Pole, though her exalted status is because of her own actions, not his.
There is a good Wiki account of her life here.
This was found scratched on her cell wall:
For traitors on the block should die;
I am no traitor, no, not I!
My faithfulness stands fast and so,
Towards the block I shall not go!
Nor make one step, as you shall see;
Christ in Thy Mercy, save Thou me!
