B16 bday celebration.jpgToday is the 85th anniversary of the birth and the
Baptism of Hi Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI. Let’s  pray for the Pope and his intentions today. 

V. Let us pray for our
Pontiff, Pope Benedict.

R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and
bless him upon earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies. 

Father. Hail Mary. 

Let us pray. O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful
people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict, 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.
