David Cameron...

..once spoke to a Pope about the “new culture of social responsibility that we want to build in Britain”.
“People of faith are great architects of that culture,” he said. “For many faith is a spur to action… Faith is part of the fabric of our country: it always has been and it always will be.”
As Cameron now returns to his responsibilties as Prime Minister,we must ensure that he keeps true to that, and to his shared belief with the Pope that “faith is not a problem for legislators to solve but rather a vital part of our national conversation”.
As it happens, events from seven decades earlier meant that his first public act after accepting office from HM and reeturning to Downing Street to announce the fact, was to take part in a public televised Christian service. 
The Scriptures remind us to pray for all who hold public office, so let's do so.
