O God, eternal shepherd,
who govern your flock with unfailing care,
grant in your boundless fatherly love
a pastor for your Church
who will please you by his holiness
and to us show watchful care.
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.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
St Peter, pray for us
St Paul, pray for us
St Benedict, pray for us
All holy men and women, pray for us
