Papa B.'s Birthday Novena

JUST in case you haven't heard yet:

We as Catholics have been asked to pray 84,000 novena's for the Pope's 84th Birthday! Also in case you aren't sure what a novena is, it's simply saying one specific prayer for 9 days in a row. This novena will end in 9 days on Papa B.'s 84th birthday!

Today is the first day of the novena for the Pope! Are you ready to pray?
Let's pray together specifically for his intentions today. Let us pray that his wisdom and guidance of the Church is rooted always in an unshakeable faith in Jesus Christ. Join me in this gift of 9 days of prayer for our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI!

Novena Prayers

Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to your shepherd, Benedict XVI, a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, may he, as successor to the Apostle Peter and the Vicar of Christ, build your Church into a sacrament of unity, love and peace for all the world

[Insert your personal petitions for the Pope here]

Let us pray for Benedict, the pope.

May the Lord preserve him,
give him a long life,
make him blessed upon the earth,
and not hand him over
to the power of his enemies.

May your hand be upon your holy servant.
And upon your son, whom you have anointed.
Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …
