Take time out from your busy day to reflect.
Try reading holy scripture or saying a prayer.
for the Pope
our Father, shepherd and guide,
look with love on Pope BENEDICT XVI , your servant,
the pastor of your Church.
May his word and example inspire
and guide the Church,
and may he, and all those entrusted to his care,
come to the joy of everlasting life.
Father of providence, look
with love on BENEDICT XVI,
our pope, your appointed successor to Saint Peter
on whom you built your Church.
May he be the visible
centre and foundation of our unity in faith and love
Grant this through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
