‘I am heartbroken by the suffering of innocent victims of conflict or persecution’: Prince Charles’ moving Easter speech
This year I had the enormous privilege of representing Her Majesty The Queen at the Maundy Thursday service, when Christians remember that humility and sacrifice are at the heart of our faith.
At this service, which he attended so many times with my mother over the years, my father, the Duke of Edinburgh, always used to read the Gospel which tells how, on the evening of the Last Supper, Jesus s knelt down before his disciples and washed their travel-weary feet.
Our Lord told them that he was doing this to give them an example of how to care for and serve one another. It’s a message they never forgot, and it’s as difficult today as it was then.
Today, millions of people find themselves displaced, weary of their journey from troubled places, hurt by the past, fearful of the future – and in need of shelter, rest and kindness.
Over the past few years, I have been heartbroken by the suffering of innocent victims of conflict or persecution, some of whom I have met who have told me stories of untold tragedy as they were forced to flee their country and seek refuge far from home.
But amidst all this sadness and inhumanity, it has been deeply moving to see how many people are willing to open their homes to those in need, and how they have offered their time and resources to help those who are faced with such devastating grief and pain. trials.
This Easter, as always, reminds us of Our Lord’s timeless example of goodness in the face of suffering, of courage in the face of fear, of faith in the face of despair. His light has triumphed in this dark time. I pray with all my heart that his inspiring example will help us all to dispel the darkness of the world…
