Prayed for our Holy Father and will continue to do so.
Praying for the Holy Father and all Priests facing false accusations. It’s a horrific situation to have to face alone. We must come to their aid during this modern-day Crucible.
Praying and will keep praying!
In case anyone would like to bookmark for quick loading a slightly extended version of this prayer in Latin and English:
Some time ago, some members of our community started saying these prayers daily as a perpetual novenas on behalf of and in thanksgiving for Pope Benedict XVI.
First decade of my rosary for priest is for our Holy Father.
To those who can. Why dont we offer an extra rosary for Our Holy Father Pope Benedict. Hes a gentle man and I think he is a Saint.
Since the media began its latest attack on the Pope, I added ten extra Ave Maria prayers specifically for him each morning (I pray in Latin or French…I haven’t mastered the German yet.)
Praying my Rosary everyday for our Holy Father.
Dear Mary, Mother of the Church, look down on the Vicar of your Son and place him under your mantle!
St. Joseph, Protector of Holy Church, pray for our Holy Father, who bore your name at his baptism!
St. Benedict, intercede for our Holy Father, who bears your name as Pope!
I read an extremely hateful, poorly written, poorly fact checked, etc article this morning (maybe the same one) over the internet and it left me depressed all day…
At the end of the day, I just said a rosary for the pope. This pope and his writings got me and my wife through a very difficult time in our lives. This is about him and not us, but I owe him a lot, of course, through Christ.
So, I just pray.
I said the prayer and I try to remember to say a quick prayer for him every time his picture is shown or a video of him is played.
Said the prayer and two decades of the Rosary for him last night. Will continue to pray for our Papa each day. The Slate piece was utterly hateful. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
