They say that life is all about relationships and that relationships are all about commitment. On that note I take my hat off to a certain lady, to whom I dedicate this Editorial, who has shown exemplary commitment to God, her family and the demands at large that have been placed upon her at large. There’s little else to do in these few lines other than invoke the prayer proposed by our Bishops of England and Wales in honour of Queen Elizabeth II:

‘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 her consort and 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.
