God of heaven and earth, Creator of all,
Be always by the side of Your Ambassador Pope Francis I.
Guide him in his words and actions,
Sustain him as an instrument of Your peace and compassion,
Give him the wisdom and strength to do Your Will,
Protect him from all evil,
Help him to shepherd the flock of the Church, to bring it to salvation,
And manifest in him Your boundless mercy, Your forgiveness and kindness.
May he always be filled with Your unfathomable love,
And may he be a vessel for that love to fill the world.
V. Let us pray for Pope Francis I.
R. May the Lord bless him, keep him, and protect him from all harm.
May God’s spirit shine upon him and give him peace.
