His Holiness Pope Francis

I am still recovering from the excitement of yesterday. I want to do everything in my humble power to spread the call for prayer for our new Soveriegn Pontiff.

Here are some ideas:

1. Pray the prayer:
V. Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff, Pope Francis.
R. 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.

2. Pray daily for the intentions of the Holy Father: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be.

3. Pray the Rosary (I debated whether I should remind people).

4. Pray the Franciscan Crown in honor of the name of His Holiness.

5. Pray the Litany of Jesuit Saints.

St. Joseph, patron of the Church, pray for us!

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

Venerable Fulton Sheen, loyal servant of God and the Pontiffs, pray for us!
