Prayer for the Pope Emeritus


O God, true shepherd of all the faithful, look with kindness upon Thy servant Pope Benedict XVI, whom Thou set as head and shepherd of Thy Church.

We give Thee thanks for Thy grace at work in him as he had led us by word and example: in his teaching, in his prayer and in his great love.

Grant him Thy strength in frailty, comfort in sorrow, and serenity amid the trials of this world; and guide Thy Church, built on the rock of Peter, with the power of Thy Spirit as we continue on the path that leads to Thee.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
