Pray for the Pope

In light of the attacks on Pope Benedict, I thought it would be a good idea to pray for him. This pray is in Envoy, Vol. 9.2.

God Our Father, look with kindness upon your servant Pope Benedict XVI, the pastor of Your Church. Grant him, we beseech you, an abundance of the virtues of faith, hope, and charity, prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Protect him from the designs of his enemies, and grant him always the courage to fight the good fight. As successor to the Apostle Peter and vicar of Christ, may his fidelity to you, through his words and example, inspire and guide the Church, and may he and all those entrusted to his care come to the joys of eternal life. Grant this, we pray, through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy spirit, on God, forever and ever. AMEN
