We pray for the intentions of Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. We ask that as Pope Francis continues to follow in Peter’s footsteps, he may understand your plan for a New Evangelization more clearly and be greatly strengthened by wisdom and courage to help its growth to the ends of the Earth!

“O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your fatherly care, the glory of the cross of Christ, and the splendor of the Holy Spirit, to shine through him.

“Trusting fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd, and has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving eternal communion with you.

“Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we need to be men and women in the new evangelization, hoping that we, one day along with St. John Paul II, will be numbered among your saints. Amen.”
