In his sermon at the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II today, the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, praised the Christian faith and example of the late monarch.

After readings from St. Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians and St. John’s Gospel, Welby said: “Jesus — who in our reading does not tell his disciples how to follow, but who to follow — said: ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’”

“Her Late Majesty’s example was not set through her position or her ambition, but through whom she followed.”

The funeral service was held in Westminster Abbey, the church in which Queen Elizabeth was married to Prince Philip in 1947 and in which her coronation was held in 1953.
