Prayer for Pope Francis

To be prayed after Post Communion Prayer from January 22 to February 22, 2015

We come together before the Lord in the spirit of thanksgiving for the apostolic visit of Pope Francis. Everywhere the Pope went he asked us to pray for him and each time he asked for prayers we gave him our promise. Fulfilling our promise now, we gladly and humbly present our prayers for the Pope.

Let our response be: Bless and protect Pope Francis.

That the message of Pope Francis for mercy and compassion may find resonance in the hearts of all people, we pray

Bless and protect Pope Francis.

That all who exercise leadership may learn to blend courage with tenderness according to the example of Jesus and reflected in the life of Pope Francis, let us pray

Bless and protect Pope Francis.

That the love of Jesus exemplified in ministry of Pope Francis for the forgotten and the neglected, the ignored and the marginalized may be lived by all, let us pray

Bless and protect Pope Francis.

That Pope Francis may continue to enjoy the grace of pastoral wisdom, of health of mind and body and of fortitude against all difficulties, let us pray

Bless and protect Pope Francis.

Let us pray.

Lord Good Shepherd, bless and protect Pope Francis. Safeguard the Church from all harm. Guide us in the path of truth and charity forever and forever. Amen.
