Prayer for the Pope

We publish this prayer in union with the recommendation of Archbishops Tomash Peta and Jan Pawel Lenga and Bishop Athanasius Schneider “to recite every day this ancient prayer of the Church or a part of the holy rosary in the intention that Pope Francis may revoke in an unequivocal manner those pastoral guidelines, which permit the divorced and so-called ‘remarried’ to receive the sacraments of Penance and Eucharist without asking them to fulfill the obligation of a life in continence.”

Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco: Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram ædificabo Ecclesiam Meam, et portæ inferi non prævalebunt adversus eam.

Let us pray for our Pontiff Francis: The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.”
