  1. I am a huge admirer of Her Royal Highness. Thanks for posting this!

  2. An unabashedly Christian message. Brava Your Majesty!

  3. I am not a fan of aristocracy, but a message like that justifies keeping a King and Queen. That left a lump in my throat. Could one of our presidents put out a message like that? Well, a president is a secular office holder. I guess it wouldn’t be unconstitutional (perhaps) but it wouldn’t be appropriate. English aristocracy is intertwined with the Church of England and so it is appropriate. God bless the Queen for that.

  4. Great message of hope! Deacon, you have a great blog. Keep up the good work!

  5. I think the Queen is the head of the Church of England.

  6. The President and Mrs. Obama’s Christmas message struck me as much more Christian than in the past.

  7. Beautiful. Long Live the Queen.
