Dedication to Her Majesty


Return to 'Defence of the Seven Sacraments'


To Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth; and to her successors to the throne according to Law, this New Millennium edition of ‘Defence of the Seven Sacraments’ by King Henry VIII is devotedly dedicated.

This edition is a respectful and fraternal reminder of that peaceful unity in 'One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism' (Eph. 4:5) which Merry England – the 'Island of the Saint' and 'Dowry of the Virgin Mary' – and the Apostolic See of Rome shared together for nearly one thousand years, especially in the glorious days of the sweet springtime of our Faith, when the philosophy of the Gospel governed the States in mediaeval Christendom.

May Our Lady of Walsingham prayerfully intercede for Her Majesty, the Royal family and all religious denominations that issued from England; so that, by acknowledging the fullness of the Apostolic teaching on the seven Sacraments - so fiercely defended by King Henry VIII - they may help restore the unity of all the baptised in the Body of Christ, for the greater glory of God, salvation of souls and peace and prosperity for all Christian nations.

Her Majesty's loyal subject,
Raymond Joseph de Souza
Brazilian by birth, Catholic by grace, Australian by choice.
On the second day of June in the year of Our Lord Jesus Christ of two thousand and seven, the fifty-fourth anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation.
