Your Royal Majesty,

On my own behalf and on behalf of the entire pleroma of the Serbian Orthodox Church, I offer You my sincerest condolences on the passing away of Your Mother Queen Elizabeth II.

Late Queen Elizabeth, the planetary symbol of wisdom, courage and patriotism, rightfully, as the head of the Anglican Church, bore the title of the Defender of the Faith. Queen Elizabeth dedicated her whole life primarily to peace – the essential need of the world, both seven decades ago when she took the crown of the United Kingdom with dignity, and today when she leaves, we are assured, to where the righteous are living in blessedness.

We pray to the Lord to rest the soul of the reposed Queen in a place of brightness, in a place of verdure, in a place of rest and to show her as the inheritor of divine goods in the courts of the righteous.

May the Lord give comfort to You, the Royal Family and all the nations of the United Kingdom at this difficult moment.

Porfirije
