    I don't know if I can completely agree with Fr Roth when he says that there was no poverty in England until Henry VIII ( Defender of the Faith ) came down the pike. We all know the stories of Robinhood and his group of troopers - robbing the rich and giving to the poor - ha! ha! Actually there is a question as to whether there was such a guy but outlaw bands existed in England at this time and the monasteries were systematically ripping off the common folk wit the tacit support of the authorities. King Richard the Lion Hearted was off gallivanting in the Holy Land and Prince( later King ) John( Lackland ) was doing what he could to feather his own nest at the expense of the People. I've heard this line before - everything was just hunky dory until our boy Martin Luther came along. Oh well, just thought I'd throw this out for general consumption.
