Cranmer: “Elizabeth II becomes our longest-reigning monarch – God Save The Queen!”

September 10, 2015

The current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, with the Queen Elizabeth.

Stoking the flame of my Anglophilia, Archbishop Cranmer offers the following in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II, who became Britain’s longest-reigning monarch yesterday:

Through an era of unprecedented change and social revolution, she has been a rock of majesty; an anchor, compass and counsellor to 12 prime ministers and seven archbishops of Canterbury. When it has rained, her sun has shone because the Son dwells in her heart, transforming to the likeness of saintliness, servanthood and sacramental kingship. You may think all this smacks of obsequious fawning and sycophantic hyperbole: you know nothing of the image of God.
