VATICAN CITY: A group of visiting priests and seminarians lay hands in prayer over Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square on June 7th, 2017.

A Prayer for the Pope

May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Psalm 40:3]
(Say the Our Father and the Hail Mary.)
O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Francis, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
