We Have A Pope

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio
Pope Francis I

God our Father,
look with love on Francis our new Pope,
your appointed successor to St. Peter
on whom you built your Church.
May he lead your Church
as a gentle and strong Shepherd
and may our Communion with him
assure our unity in faith and love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever. Amen.
