Prayer for the Pope
shelter our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI,
under the protection of Thy Sacred Heart.
Be Thou his light, his strength, and his consolation."
O God, the Pastor and Ruler of all the faithful,
look down, in Your mercy,
upon Your servant Pope Benedict XVI,
whom You have appointed to preside over Your Church;
and grant, we beseech You, that both by word and example, he may edify all those under his charge;
so that with the flock entrusted to him, he may arrive at length unto life everlasting.
Through Christ Our Lord.
