The pope refuses saying But its the Lords Prayer, I couldnt possibly change the words.

I was born in 1118 in Normandy the son of an English merchant. My father was a former sheriff of London.
I was educated in Paris, where I studied law. In 1154 I was introduced to the newly crowned king Henry II and formed a strong friendship, so much so, that I became his chancellor.
My big career break came in 1162 when at the kings insistence and at odds with the Vatican, I became Archbishop of Canterbury. During this time I became embroiled in rows between the church and the crown and as a consequence spent a period of exile in France. Upon my return to England, the previously friendly relationship I had shared with the king was over and in 1170 at the instigation of the king I was brutally murdered on the steps of my own alter.
