Prayer for Pope Francis' 80th Birthday
Dec 20, 2016
Let's all pray together
Heavenly Father, in your immense and unstoppable
love for us you've made all things possible. You have created the visible and
invisible universe and you've given it as a gift to us with the only purpose
to glorify your name in the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
That same burning love, that you manifested to
Moses in the non-consumable bushfire, made you send your beloved Son, Jesus, to
become one of us in the graceful and unconditional consent of the Virgin Mary,
mother of the Lord and our mother, to the angel's message.
And even when our failure and wickedness put Jesus
on the cross and thus his Holy Body to death, you, Father, revealed to us in an
ultimate act of love that you're the Word and the Light by giving us back Jesus
in the Resurrection.
Knowing that our human nature is weak and that we
need a shepherd to guide us, Jesus appointed Peter as his successor and corner
stone of his radiant Bride. This tradition has carried on through the 2000 years
of church history.
In today's tumultuous and challenging times for
our faith and society you, Lord, have anointed our brother Jorge Mario Bergoglio
to be the Bishop of Rome, your successor and guardian of our Catholic moral and
faith. By accepting the name of Pope Francis he's already laid out the doctrine
the church has to follow to enflame our hearts for the Creator.
In Pope Francis we recognize your face, heavenly
Saint Francis of Assisi as his name and faith patron as his teachings and example can help
us reinvigorate our lives in God's love;
to be poor in spirit and deprived of material things;
to mourn with all the poor and abandoned of our society;
to share the food and affection with those who hunger and thirst;
to visit those who are in prison or sick and cloth the naked;
to welcome the strangers and the migrants in his dwelling;
to be merciful and proclaimed 2016 as the Year of Mercy;
to be pure of heart by denouncing the greedy and the selfish;
to be peacemaker by rejecting violence and war.
Beloved Pope Francis - Happy 80th Birthday!
