ST. GEORGE'S CHAPEL at Windsor, from which tonight's service will be relayed, owes its chief interest to its being the Chapel of the Order of the Garter. For this reason, as the Dean of Windsor puts it, it is unique among the Churches of Christendom. It is the only one which exists to enshrine a particular view of life. The founding of the Order of the Garter was Edward Ill 's great means of stamping the ideas of chivalry on national life. The highest honour attainable was not to be a title or property, but it was to be service to the country and the qualities necessary for that service. Knights of the Garter must be men who had risked their lives for their country and who stood out pre-eminently for such sacrifice. But in associating the Chapel with his Order and providing stalls in the Chapel where the Knights and Canons could sit alternately, side by side in the worship of God, Edward III insisted on the idea that true national service must rest on prayer, that all nobility of life and glory in life should grow out of submission to God, and the recognition of His Lordship. So St. George's Chapel in its worship recalls to us that the glory of life lies in service and the power of doing great service lies in prayer and worship.'
