HAPPY 82ND BIRTHDAY POPE FRANCIS

December 17,1936 -December 17,2018
Prayer for the Holy Father
Heavenly Father, in your immense and unstoppable love for us you've made all things possible. You have created the visible and invisible universe and you've given it as a gift to us with the only purpose to glorify your name in the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
That same burning love, that you manifested to Moses in the non-consumable bushfire, made you send your beloved Son, Jesus, to become one of us in the graceful and unconditional consent of the Virgin Mary, mother of the Lord and our mother, to the angel's message.
And even when our failure and wickedness put Jesus on the cross and thus his Holy Body to death, you, Father, revealed to us in an ultimate act of love that you're the Word and the Light by giving us back Jesus in the Resurrection.

Knowing that our human nature is weak and that we need a shepherd to guide us, Jesus appointed Peter as his successor and corner stone of his radiant Bride. This tradition has carried on through the 2000 years of church history.
In today's tumultuous and challenging times for our faith and society you, Lord, have anointed our brother Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be the Bishop of Rome, your successor and guardian of our Catholic moral and faith. By accepting the name of Pope Francis he's already laid out the doctrine the church has to follow to enflame our hearts for the Creator.
In Pope Francis we recognize your face, heavenly Father, because:
*he chose Saint Francis of Assisi as his name and faith patron as his teachings and example can help us reinvigorate our lives in God's love;
* he chose to be poor in spirit and deprived of material things;
he chose to mourn with all the poor and abandoned of our society;

*he chose to share the food and affection with those who hunger and thirst;
*he chose to visit those who are in prison or sick and cloth the naked;
*he chose to welcome the strangers and the migrants in his dwelling;
*he chose to be merciful and proclaimed 2016 as the Year of Mercy;
*he chose to be pure of heart by denouncing the greedy and the selfish;
* he chose to be peacemaker by rejecting violence and war.
V. Let us pray for Francis, the Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, give him a long life, make him blessed upon the earth, and may the Lord not hand him over to the power of his enemies.
V. May your hand be upon your holy servant.
R. And upon your son whom you have anointed.
Let us pray. O God, the Pastor and Ruler of all the faithful, look down, in your mercy, upon your servant, Francis, whom you have appointed to preside over your Church; and grant, we beseech you, that both by word and example, he may edify all those under his charge; so that, with the flock entrusted to him, he may arrive at length unto life everlasting. Through Christ our Lord.
R. Amen.
Beloved Pope Francis - Happy 82ND Birthday!
