Saint Philip Howard Biography

Saint Philip Howard was the grandson of the artist Henry, Earl of Surrey, who was executed by King Henry VIII in 1547. Child of Thomas, the fourth Duke of Norfolk. Godson of King Philip of Spain. His folks were Protestant, yet his mom came back to Catholicism and helped conceal clerics. Hitched to Anne, a girl of Lord d’Acre, at age 14. His dad was decapitated by Queen Elizabeth in 1572 when Phillip was 15. Granddad of Blessed William Howard. Moved on from Saint John’s College, Cambridge in 1574. Subject to Queen Elizabeth at age 18. Duke of Arundel and Surrey on 24 February 1580. At the imperial court, he drove an evil and lewd life.

In 1581 he was available at the Tower of London during the procedures against Saint Edmund Campion, Saint Ralph Sherwin and others, and they greatly affected him. He came back to his home in Arundel to consider their confidence and his own and was accommodated to the Church on 30 September 1584. He intended to move to another country so he could rehearse his confidence, however, was double-crossed by a hireling, captured on 15 April 1585, and held up in the Tower of London on 25 April.

He was cross-examined widely for a year, discovered blameworthy of injustice due to being Catholic, fined £10,000, and came back to jail. During the influx of hostile to Catholicism that cleared the nation in 1588, he was re-attempted, discovered blameworthy of petitioning God for triumph for the Spanish Armada, and condemned to death. He went through the following seven years in jail, petitioning God for a considerable length of time every day, in the long run biting the dust from general abuse. One of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.
