The Queen uses her Christmas message to call for unity, saying that the “message of peace on Earth” is “needed as much as ever.”
Queen Elizabeth II emphasized in her annual Christmas message broadcast this year that the message of Christ of “peace on earth and good will towards all” is “never out of date” and is “needed as much as ever. “
“The Christmas story retains its appeal since it doesn’t contain theoretical explanations for the puzzles of life,” said the 92-year-old monarch of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth countries. “Instead, it is about the birth of a child and the hope that birth 2,000 years ago brought to the world. While only a few people acknowledged Jesus’ birth, billions now follow him. “
Since her reign began as Queen in 1952., the annual broadcast has been a tradition of Christmas Day. It has been a way for her to share her thoughts with people across the Commonwealth and in the UK.
This year marks the centennial of World War I’s armistice, which was signed by allies and Germany. The Queen also highlighted the timeliness of Eric Milner White, an Anglican priest, who established the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s College, Cambridge, just weeks after the armistice.
” Heard by millions around the globe, it begins with the choristers singing the opening verse, “Once in Royal David city,” she said. “He desired a new type of service that would communicate peace and goodwill to his time. “
Queen Elizabeth expressed gratitude to all the soldiers and said that at Christmas time, she becomes acutely aware of the deaths of her loved ones, regardless what the circumstances. We wouldn’t grieve if our loved ones died. “
This year, the Royal Family enjoyed a number of joyous events. These included two weddings, that of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Princess Eugenie, and the third royal baby news, of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton.
“Two marriages, two babies, and another child due soon. It keeps a grandmother busy,” she said with satisfaction. “We have had other celebrations too, including the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales. “
The Queen warns about the “inclination for good” and “capacity to evil of humans. “
” Even the power of faith which often inspires great generosity, self-sacrifice and sacrifice can be sabotaged by tribalism,” she stated.
Despite the many changes she has witnessed over the years, the British monarch stated that she has found comfort and reassurance in faith, family and friends that has remained constant.
In April, the heads of Commonwealth government met in London, Queen Elizabeth said her father welcomed just 8 such countries to such meetings in 1948. Now, the Commonwealth countries include 53 countries with 2.4 billion people, a third of the world’s population.
” Its strength lies in the bonds it fosters and a shared desire to live in peace and harmony. Even with deep-rooted differences, it is a good start to greater understanding by treating another person with respect and as a fellow being.
The Queen reminds everyone that Christ’s message can be heard by all and ends her broadcast by wishing everyone a happy Christmas.
