“God sent into the world a unique person – neither a philosopher nor a general, important though they are, but a saviour, with the power to forgive. Forgiveness lies at the heart of the Christian faith. It can heal broken families, it can restore friendships and it can reconcile divided communities. It is in forgiveness that we feel the power of God’s love.”
Queen Elizabeth in her Christmas Day speech 25 December 2011.
