Letter to The Editor - A monarchy stands for a people inspired by holy mystery; a republic is human, all-too-human

To THE AGE   
     Once more beating the tawdry republican drum (‘A new year, new talk of a republic’, 3/1),
you imply that Her Majesty the Queen is not ‘one of our own’, but just what do you mean by that ambiguous term?

     For those of us who cherish the current reality that Australia is a nation founded by the British and
constituted within the sacred tradition of Christianity, the Queen is most certainly one of us - indeed, pre-eminently so.
A monarchy stands for a people inspired by holy mystery; a republic is human, all-too-human.
Changing from the one to the other would not be a ‘fresh start’ but a profound slipping into decadence.
