Prayer for Pope Francis
Our Father, we the faithful, humbly thank and praise You for our new Vicar. We ask You to protect him from the malice of the world. Defend him from all who wish him harm.
Have mercy on us all, O Lord, and bless Pope Francis with the gifts of knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and the wise discernment to know Your Will. May he serve You faithfully, as Your representative on earth. Amen
Mary, Mother of the Church, intercede for blessing upon our Pope Francis.
St. Joseph, patron of the church, pray for us.
