I am British, although not currently living in the UK. I am interested in visiting the tomb of a great English saint Thomas a Becket. His tomb was at Canterbury Cathedral where he was murdered. The Cathedral was Catholic but from the time of the reformation it has been Anglican. When I look at the website I cannot find any information about Becket’s tomb. Does anyone know if it is still at the Cathedral and can it still be venerated?
OK I will answer my own question as I found this video youtu.be/21Mj3Y8MTYs which clearly shows the shrine is still within the cathedral.
Edit: hang on, I just read the comments and apparently Becket’s body was destroyed. Does anyone know the answer? I was also surprised to see Mass offered in a (currently) Anglican Cathedral but they must’ve had permission from the correct authorities to do this I imagine…?
This book looks interesting…amazon.com/The-Quest-Beckets-Bones-Canterbury/dp/0300061153
See paragraph 2.
There also is a small memorial shrine at the spot in the cathedral where Becket was killed.
