Novena for the Pope

Please pray for our Pope in his efforts to right the helm of the Barque of Peter.

Novena for Pope Benedict XV1
Lord, source of eternal life and truth'
give to Your shepherd, Benedict, 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
and Vicar of Christ, build Your Church
into a sacrament of unity, love and peace
for all the world. Amen.

Let us pray for Benedict, the Pope.
May the Lord preserve him, give him a long
life, make him blessed upon the earth,
and not hand him over to the power of his enemies.

May Your hand be upon your holy servant.
And upon Your Son, Whom You have anointed.
Our Father...... Hail Mary.... Glory Be.....
