PRAYER FOR THE POPE AND THE BISHOPS

PRAYER FOR THE POPE AND THE BISHOPS

Good Lord Christ Jesus, I cry thee mercy for all states that be in Holy Church, for the Pope and all his cardinals, for all archbishops and bishops, and for all the order of priesthood, for all men and women of religion, and especially for them that are busy to save and defend the Faith of Holy Church. Lord, for thy mercy, bless them and grant them the victory over all their enemies, and speed them in all that they go about in thy worship; for all that are in grace, at this time, God send them perseverance unto their lives’ end, and make me worthy to be partaker of their prayers, and them of mine, and each of us of others.

– The Book of Margery Kempe (modernised text 1936)

A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF ST LEO

O Lord our God, grant that thy Church, following the teaching of thy servant Leo of Rome, may hold fast the great mystery of our redemption, and adore the one Christ, true God and true Man, neither divided from our human nature nor separate from thy divine Being; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever.

O God, You established Your Church on the solid rock of St Peter. Grant that she may persevere in Your truth and enjoy continual peace through the intercession of Pope St Leo. Amen.
