Prayer against storms

Jesus Christ a King of Glory has come in Peace. +
God became man, + and the Word was made flesh. +
Christ was born of a Virgin.+
Christ suffered.+
Christ was crucified.+
Christ died.+
Christ rose from the dead.+
Christ ascended into Heaven. +
Christ conquers. +
Christ reigns. +
Christ orders. +

May Christ protect us from all storms and lightning.+
Christ went through their midst in Peace, +
and the Word was made flesh. +
Christ is with us with Mary. +
Flee you enemy spirits because the Lion of the Generation of Juda, the Root of David, has won. +

Holy God! + 
Holy Powerful God! + 
Holy Immortal God! +
Have mercy on us.


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.

Prayer for the Pope

Pro Pontifice

Let us pray for the Supreme Pontiff, Pope Francis, that His Holiness may be a worthy Successor of St Peter: O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all the faithful, graciously look upon Thy servant Francis, whom Thou hast been pleased to appoint over Thy Church; grant, we beseech Thee, that both by word and example he may edify those over whom he is set, and together with the flock committed to his care, may attain to eternal life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
