O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people,
mercifully look upon Thy servant _________,
whom Thou hast chosen as the chief Shepherd
to preside over Thy Church;
grant him, we beseech Thee,
so to edify, both by word and example,
those over whom he hath charge,
that he may attain unto everlasting life,
together with the flock committed unto him.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
