The Shrine Office is now closed until Monday 6 June, so we can all celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. At the Shrine of Saint Jude, we will pray for Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates this remarkable milestone.
Let us pray...
Almighty God, we pray,
that your servant Elizabeth, our Queen,
who, by your providence has received the governance of this realm,
may continue to grow in every virtue,
that, imbued with your heavenly grace,
she may be preserved from all that is harmful and evil
and, being blessed with your favour
may, with the royal family,
come at last into your presence,
through Christ who is the way, the truth and the life
and who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
