To your Majesty and to your noble people We send heartfelt greetings and good wishes on the auspicious occasion of the accession to independence of Swaziland, giving assurance of Our fervent prayers for the welfare and continued progress of your beloved country.

Your Majesty may be confident of the loyalty of the Catholic citizens of Swaziland to their country and of their generous readiness to abide by its laws.
