Praying for Queen Elizabeth II: The Platinum Jubilee and Our Ultimate Hope

Max Mumby/IndigoL to R: Queen Elizabeth II; Prince Louis of Cambridge; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Princess Charlotte of Cambridge; Prince George of Cambridge; and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge; watch a flypast from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping the Color on June 2 in London during the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II to mark the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne.

COMMENTARY: At the end of Mass on Sunday, Catholics offered a special prayer and sang the national anthem, a hymn that asks God’s blessing on the sovereign and by implication the nation.
