Prayer for Pope Francis

Prayer for Pope Francis

Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to Your shepherd,

the Pope, a spirit of courage and right judgement,

a spirit of knowledge and love. 


By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care may he,

as successor to the apostle Peter nd vicar of Christ,

build Your church into a sacrament of unity,

love and peace for all the world. 


We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

Your Son, Who lies and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,

one God, forever and ever, Amen.
