Prayer for the Future Pope

O Lord Jesus Christ, Supreme Pastor of your Church, we thank you for the ministry of Pope Benedict XVI and the selfless care with which he has led us as Successor of Peter and your Vicar on earth.  Good Shepherd, who founded your Church on the rock of Saint Peter’s faith and have never left your flock untended, look with love upon us now, and sustain your Church in faith, hope, and charity.  Grant, Lord Jesus, in you boundless love for us, a new pope for your Church who will please you by his holiness and lead us faithfully to you, who are the same yesterday, today, and forever.  Amen.
