HAPPY 84th BIRTHDAY DEAR POPE FRANCIS! AV GREETING AND PRAYERS
Dear brethren in Christ, as we celebrate Pope Francis’ birthday on Dec. 17, let us give him the gift of daily prayers so He could faithfully carry out his mission on earth as the “Dolce Cristo in terra” (Sweet Christ on earth), according to St. Catherine of Sienna.
V. Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff, Francis.
R/. The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies.
O God, who in your providential design willed that your Church be built upon blessed Peter, whom you set over the other Apostles, look with favor, we pray, on N. our Pope and grant that he whom you have made Peter’s successor, may be for your people a visible source and foundation of unity in faith and of communion. Through our Lord Jesus Chist, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
