Church of Jesus Christ Releases Statement of Admiration & Respect for Queen Elizabeth II

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency released the following statement on Thursday, September 8, 2022:

The United Kingdom and the people of the world have lost a noble monarch with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. She presided through seven decades, in times of peace and conflict, plenty and struggle, and did so with characteristic grace and goodness.

The First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints express admiration and respect for the Queen and extend our sincere condolences to her family and her people at this tender time.

In modern-day scripture, the Lord counsels that we are to “live together in love, insomuch that thou shalt weep for the loss of them that die” (Doctrine and Covenants 42:45). The many expressions of sympathy from around the world are a loving tribute to Queen Elizabeth II from those who loved her and who mourn with her family and the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

In such moments, we feel gratitude for the goodness of an exemplary life and rejoice in the hope of a glorious resurrection, made possible through the loving sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
