Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”


Our Christian Sovereign meditates upon our charitable duty to our neighbour, on tolerance, on  bonds of fraternity, family and community, on Christian love and hope, and on examination of conscience and forgiveness, both on the world stage and also in our lives together, as a response to the Nativity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour.

With her, we pray:
"O Holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.

"It is my prayer that on this Christmas Day we might all find room in our lives for the message of the angels and for the love of God,  through Christ our Lord."

  1. Comparing the overtly Christian content of Her Majesty's message to the sound byte political posturing of their man in Canterbury, it is not difficult to see why the Church of England prefers to have the Queen as Head.
