Lord Jesus Christ, you wanted to build your Church on the Rock of Peter and the popes who have succeeded him through the centuries.
Pour out your grace on our Holy Father, may he be a living sign and an indefatigable promoter of the unity of the Church.
Help him to proclaim your message to all peoples and to listen to the message that comes to him from the consent of all his members of the world that You have made.
Make him serve others following your example and according to his traditional title of “Servant of the Servants of God.”
Unite us near him and make us docile to his teachings.
