Prayer for Pope Benedict
Catholics will be given at Mass, this Sunday, a prayer card with a prayer for the Holy Father.
Almighty ever-living God,
who has given your faithful servant Benedict
grace to maintain his faith and hope in you
amid the labours of his apostolic ministry;
graciously bestow upon him, we pray,
the consolations of your Holy Spirit
and uphold him in serenity of life.
Through Christ our Lord.
