A Catholic priest blessing the Supreme Governor of the C of E?
A woman whose predecessors in office killed without mercy HIS predecessors in office? And when they could no longer kill them fined them and forbid them from all sorts of professions and public office?
A woman who even today presides over a throne that legally cannot be occupied by a Catholic or a person married to a Catholic?
A woman who rules a country still so bigoted against Catholics that poor Tony Blair was forced to wait until no longer Prime Minister before he felt able to safely convert to Catholicism?
Pray for her, yes. Congratulate her wholeheartedly in light of her remarkable achievement … umm … what exactly, besides being born to her particular parents and then staying alive long enough to sit on the throne to an advanced age, has she achieved? Congratulations anyway.
Bless her? Why? What blessings has she bestowed upon the Catholics of her realm when she permits them to still be so monstrously discriminated against?
