Apostolica Sedes Vacans

Apostolica Sedes Vacans

Here’s the prayer we’ve been praying every evening since Pope Benedict’s last day, February 28th:
Heavenly Father,
Holding to Christ’s promise that His church is built on the invincible Rock of Truth, we, Your children, beseech You:

Give us a Shepherd after your own heart — endowed with supernatural wisdom and courage, with unshakeable faith and deep humility, capable of sacrificial service. May he be zealous to defend Holy Mother Church, her sacred teaching, the integrity of her sacraments and her persecuted members throughout the world.

We invoke the Holy Spirit upon the coming conclave — to reveal with clarity and convincing force the man You have chosen to succeed Peter in these trying times.

And may the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Help of Christians and Mother of the Church, inspire and uphold all the Cardinal Electors, thwart any interference of the evil one and protect the next Bishop of Rome from every effort to harm or disarm him.
