A prayer for the Pope and the Church

A PRAYER FOR THE POPE AND THE CHURCH

O God, eternal shepherd, we thank you for the gift of Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and his faithful service to the Church. Bless him with health, happiness and holiness all the days of his life. 

We also beseech you, O Lord, who govern your flock with unfailing care, to guide your servants through the grace of your Spirit with gifts of joy, compassion,simplicity, love and strong desire for the unity of all believers to seek a new pastor for your Church who will please you by his holiness and gentleness and guide your Church in the years ahead. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the Unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
