Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Let us Pray for our Holy Father!
O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Your faithful people, mercifully look upon Your servant Francis I, whom You have chosen as the chief Shepherd to preside over Your Church. We beg You to help him edify, both by word and example, those over whom he has charge, that he may reach everlasting life together with the flock entrusted to him. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
God bless you!
