V. Let us pray for Benedict, our Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]
Let us pray. O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Today is a good day to renew our fidelity to the Successor of St Peter, and to pray for him.
The day when Norbertine Abbots visit the Pope must be a nervous one for His Holiness’ staff… Can you spot Pius XII among these Premonstratensian prelates?!
GOD BLESS HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI, GLORIOUSLY REIGNING!
