Father, who created all your children,
protect our Holy Father Benedict XVI
as he guides your flock on Earth.
Jesus, who came so that we might have abundant life,
give our Holy Father a long and
holy life so that he may help us to “come to know
and to believe in the love God has for us.”
Holy Spirit, who is Lord and giver of life,
inspire Pope Benedict XVI so that he may lead
the Church with wisdom and grace.
Many best wishes upon the occasion of your 5th anniversary of election, Holy Father.
"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew, 16,18
