Congratulations to the royal family!

As virtually everybody with the internet surely knows by now, Prince William and Duchess Kate had a baby boy this week, who will be called George.  Congratulations to the future King and Queen of Great Britain, North Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

Here follows a prayer that the Church of England has suggested for this occasion:

God our Creator,
who knows each of us by name
and loves us from all eternity:
we give you thanks for new life and human love.
Bless William and Catherine
as they welcome their son into the world.
Give them patience and wisdom
to cherish and love him as he grows.
Surround the family with the light of hope and the warmth of your love today and always; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

It feels as though these last two years, since the Royal Wedding, have the flown by.
