"Recently, a couple members of my extended family lost not one child but two in the span of one year, so I felt like words were not enough. I decided to seek out the wisdom of the Church Fathers, who always know the right thing to say."
Prayers for the Pope & the Church
Let us pray for our Pontiff, Pope Francis. The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. Our Father, Hail Mary.
Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is sanctified and governed; mercifully hear our humble supplications for all degrees and orders therein; that, by the gift of Your grace, all in their several stations may faithfully serve You. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
