    Father, thanks for that. Rest eternal grant unto her O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon her.
    God save the King.

    Thank you for this tribute to her late Majesty, much appreciated in the United Kingdom. Please pray also for His Majesty King Charles III, that God may guide him in his reign and protect him from all evil, and that the bonds between our Countries may remain strong and durable.

    Those of us in the Commonwealth Countries are having our daily masses replaced with Requiem Masses for the repose of her soul.

    I said a chaplet this morning for her. Born in 1926 the same year as my late mother who predeceased her 4 years ago. May she rest in peace.

  6. Andreas says:

    It is with great sorrow that we here in Austria learned of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. May Our Lord hold her close and give her eternal peace.

    Dear Fr. Zuhlsdorf

    Thank you very much for marking the passing of our beloved Sovereign. For most of us she is the only monarch we have known. She will be greatly missed. Our nation has lost its mother and we are in mourning. May her soul rest in peace and let perpetual light shine on her. We pray that God will give King Charles III the strength and wisdom he will need to lead our nation.

    May God bless us all.

    RIP, dear Queen. It feels like the loss of another good person from a “different time” in the world.

    As I watch the traditional ceremonies as they happen for the first time in many of our lifetime, I noticed many of the comments from all over speak praisingly and in awe of the traditional ceremonies that are occurring.

    An interesting fact about why horses are no longer used to pull the Queen to Westminster Abbey that you likely won’t hear in the news is that when Queen Victoria was being taken to her funeral, one of the horses’ harnesses snapped and the horses got spooked and the Queen’s coffin almost went for a ride down the hill. Using people is a bit more predictable.
