The Queen's Message.

I AM very grateful for the kind message which I
have received for Empire-Youth Sunday, 1954,
and I send my good wishes to.all who share in its
-observance throughout the.British Commonwealth.
At the time of my Coronation I was deeply
touched by the loyalty and affection shown to me
by the young people of many lands, and I have
happy memories of those whom I met during my
recent journey overseas. I ask them during the
years ahead to sustain me with their prayers as
they did at my Coronation,
I ask them too to remember that as citizens of
our great Commonwealth they inherit privileges
and duties of which they must prepare themselves
to be worthy. I pray that in these years of
preparation they may go forward with confidence
in their high destiny and with affection for each
other as brothers and sisters in one world-wide
Family, learning to serve God and the Common-
wealth by striving each for the good of all.
