Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of a healthy baby boy on St Mary Magdalene’s Day, 22 July 2013.
We hope Prince George will thrive, and grow up to share some of the qualities of the saint with whom he shares a special day:
- As Mary Magdalene was healed and made whole, may the prince grow up healthy in body, mind and spirit.
- As Mary Magdalene was deeply loving, may the prince love deeply and be loved by his family and his friends. May he be a steadfast friend and a faithful companion.
- As Mary Magdalene was courageous in her presence at the cross and her witness to the world, may the prince be courageous in standing up for what is right rather than what is most politically expedient or most popular.
- And as Mary Magdalene knew and loved her Saviour, may the prince be brought up in the church and grow in the faith all his days.
