Prayer for Pope Francis
In the spirit of faith and with filial and devout affection we raise our prayer for Pope Francis:
“Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco: Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo Ecclesiam Meam, et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus eam.”
As a concrete means we recommend to recite every day this ancient prayer of the Church or a part of the holy rosary in the intention that Pope Francis may revoke in an unequivocal manner those pastoral guidelines, which permit the divorced and so-called “remarried” to receive the sacraments of Penance and Eucharist without asking them to fulfil the obligation of a life in continence.

English translation of the prayer (produced with the help of Google Translate):
“Let us pray for our Pope Francis: May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and let him not surrender to the will of his enemies. Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.“
