O God, who in your providential design,
willed that your Church be built
upon blessed Peter,
whom you set over the other Apostles,
look with favor, we pray, on Francis our Pope
and grant that he, whom you have made
Peter's successor, may be for your people
a visible source and foundation
of unity in faith and of communion.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, For Ever and ever.
From the Roman Missal
