Pope salutes Queen Elizabeth on Diamond Jubilee

Catholic World News - June 06, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI has sent a message to Queen Elizabeth II, offering his “warmest congratulations” to the British monarch on her Diamond Jubilee.

The Pope’s message said that Queen Elizabeth has provided “an inspiring example of dedication to duty and a commitment to maintaining the principles of freedom, justice and democracy, in keeping with a noble vision of the role of a Christian monarch.”

The Pontiff’s message recalls his own visit to the Queen’s residence in Edinburgh during his apostolic visit in 2010, and thanks her for her hospitality. Pope Benedict said that her “personal to cooperation and mutual respect between the followers of different religious traditions has contributed in no small measure to improving ecumenical and inter-religious relations throughout your realms.”
