Welcome to America, Papa!!

nullOur Holy Father is here! Are you excited or what?! Tomorrow is our beloved pontiff’s 81st birthday. And Saturday will mark his third anniversary as Pope. What a privilege it is to be able to share these two very special occasions with the pope this year! Here is the Knights of Columbus’ papal visit prayer:

Almighty Father, who pours forth blessings in
abundance upon us, we humbly pray that you
will inspire, guide and protect Pope Benedict
XVI on his pastoral visit to the United States.
Lord God, bless our Holy Father who comes as
a messenger of peace and charity to all people
of faith and good will. May his presence in the
United States serve to build up the bonds that
unite us who are each made in your image and
likeness, and may his teaching and witness
strengthen the faith of the People of God.
Father, we lovingly entrust Pope Benedict’s
visit to the care of Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Queen of the Americas. Through her prayers
may he be preserved from all harm, and may
he shine forth with the truth of the Gospel that
he proclaims, and may his presence among us
foster a renewal of the Church in our country.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
