Prayer for Pope Francis

V. Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff, Francis

R. The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies. (Enchiridion Indulgentiarum, 25)

O God, who in your providential design willed that your Church be built upon blessed Peter, whom you set over the other Apostles, look with favor, we pray, on Francis our Pope and grant that he, whom you have made Peter's successor, may be for your people a visible source and foundation of unity in faith and of communion. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen!
