During Mass at Westminster Cathedral on the occasion of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Tuesday 5 June 2012, Archbishop Vincent Nichols spoke of the Queen’s steadfast commitment to serving others, rooted in faith in God as a loving father.
Archbishop Nichols thanked God for the sixty years of reign of our Queen and said:
“ I am sure that it is her Christian faith that lies at the heart of this commitment to service. Service demands a greater good which lifts those who serve beyond self interest. A life of total service requires a greater good which goes beyond all this world can offer. Faith in God as a loving Father is what lies at the heart of life-long service.”
