National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life
Prays for Pope Benedict XVI

 

The National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life

joins their prayers with the prayers of the universal Church

for our beloved  Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI.

We humbly place our hands in your hands Holy Father,

as we proclaim Jesus Christ, our Catholic faith,

and the Gospel of Life to our people and the world.

 

“My dear friends – at this moment I can only say: pray for me, that I may learn to love the Lord more and more.  Pray for me, that I may learn to love his flock more and more – in other words, you, the holy Church, each one of you and all of you together, Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves.  Let us pray for one another, that the Lord will carry us and that we will learn
to carry one another.”

 Pope Benedict XVI – Sunday April 24, 2005
Installation Mass

 

 

Father of Providence,

look with love on Benedict XVI, our Pope,

your appointed successor to St. Peter

on whom you built your Church.

 May he be the visible center

and foundation

of our unity in faith and love.

 

Grant this though our Lord

Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you

and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.
