Continued Prayers For Benedict XVI

By the grace of God and continued prayers and support, the Holy Father is sustained in his Petrine Ministry.

LES COMBES, ITALY - Being pope isn't easy, Benedict XVI admitted to reporters Monday during a break from his holiday in the Italian Alps.

Elected pontiff on April 19, German-born Benedict celebrates 100 days in office this week.

Asked whether being the spiritual leader of the world's one billion Catholics was a difficult task, he said: "In a way yes. I had never thought about this ministry, but the people are very good to me and support me." Read more in Expatica and Catholic Exchange.

Prayer for the Holy Father Benedict XVI

God our Father, shepherd and guide,
look with love on Benedict
your servant, the pastor of your Church.
May his word and example inspire
and guide the Church, and
may he, and all those entrusted
to his care, come to the joy of
everlasting life.

Grant this through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
