Prayer for the Church (from the prayers of Pope Leo XIII)

In Benedict XVI, Catholicism, Christianity, Church, Faith, God, Jesus, Liturgy, Prayer, Religion on February 28, 2013 at 22:33

On this fateful day on which the abdication of Pope Benedict the Magnificent, Defender of the Faith, takes effect, let us all pray for the one true Church, following the Prayers after Low Mass decreed by Pope Leo XIII. The complete prayers may be found on Sancta Missa, and include this humble petition to the Lord our God:

O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

And, Lord, thank You for giving us Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Professor, Scholar, and Priest, to be Your earthly vicar Pope Benedict XVI. Viva il Papa!
