Prayer for Pope Francis on the 50th Anniversary of His Ordination

Prayer for Pope Francis who will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on Friday, December 13, 2019:

Father of mercy,
we come before you with gratitude
for the fifty years of priesthood of Pope Francis, whom you have made Peter’s successor.

Support him with the Spirit’s gifts,
so that he can continue to preach the Gospel with priestly zeal and lead the Church with wisdom and strength and courage.

May his example of long and faithful service be an inspiration to your priests and to all your faithful.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
