Heavenly Father, we thank thee for the most wondrous election of our new Holy Father, Pope N.
Now elected, we humbly beseech you Lord, to stand with and guide Holy Father, Pope N. during this great time of trial and tribulation for the Holy Church.
We know you have chosen N. because he is the right man to shepherd us through the great darkness which confronts your faithful.
May he protect us from the evils of secularism, atheism, and consumerism.
May he guide us as we fight against the evils of abortion, corruption, and violence.
May he renew our faith.
May he remind us of the importance of the Fundamental Right to Life which all humans enjoy.
May his reign be both long and just, his leadership so divinely inspired as to live in legend.
We thank you Lord, for our new Holy Father, we rejoice at his elevation and at the works of thy hand through which all good things come.
