O God, Shepherd and ruler of all the faithful,Look favorably on your servant Pope Francis I, whom you have set at the head of your Church as her shepherd; grant, we pray, that, by word and example, he may be of service to those over whom he presides so that, together with the flock entrusted to his care,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
