Prayer for the Pope
Lord Jesus Christ,
you willed to build your Church on Peter the Rock
and the Popes who have succeeded him through the ages.
Pour forth your grace on our Holy Father
that he may be a living sign and an indefatigable promoter
of the unity of the Church.
Help him to proclaim your message to all people
and to listen to the message that comes to him
from the consensus of all its members
and from the world that yo made.
Make him serve others after your example
and in accord with his traditional title:
"Servant of the servants of God."
Unite us closely to him
and make us docile to his teachings.
