All are invited here to St. Joseph Parish to spend an hour at 8:00 pm in prayer to mark Pope Benedict XVI’s historic resignation as leader of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church, which becomes effective at 2 pm Eastern Standard time. We give thanks for his ministry over the years and pray for the Cardinals as they gather in Rome for the Conclave to select a new pope to lead the faithful.
PRAYER FOR THE HOLY FATHER
Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to Your shepherd, the Pope, a spirit of courage and right judgement, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care may he, as successor to the apostle Peter and vicar of Christ, build Your church into a sacrament of unity, love, and peace for all the world. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
