Let us pray..........

The team over at PrayTell have the right idea in all the media frenzy that will follow todays announcement from Rome:

There will be more, much more, to say about the shocking news that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI is resigning. Let our first response be prayer.

Prayer of Thanksgiving for the Ministry of Pope Benedict XVI:

O God, the Father of every gift,
we confess that all we have and are comes down from you;
teach us to recognize the effects of your boundless care
and to love you with a sincere heart
and with all our strength.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


Prayer for the Election of a Pope:

O God, eternal shepherd,
who govern your flock with unfailing care,
grant in your goundless fatherly love
a pastor for your Church
who will please you by his holiness
and to us show watchful care.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


Amen
