Oratio pro summo Pontifice: Prayer for the Pope
V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco.
R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in
animam inimicorum eius.
Pater Noster, Ave Maria.
Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum Franciscum, quem pastorem Ecclesiae
tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest,
proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum
V. Let us pray for Francis, our Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and
deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]
Our Father, Hail Mary.
O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Francis,
whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee,
that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together
with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord.
