Queen’s Christmas Speech Highlights ‘Darkness’ Of Terrorism, Cites Gospel of John

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II used her Christmas address Friday to highlight the triumph of good over evil after a string of attacks in 2015, and to draw attention to the plight of refugees.

She delivered her pre-recorded message at Buckingham Palace, wearing a white and silver dress and while sat at a desk with a Christmas tree in the background.

“It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’,” she said.
