Novena Prayers for Pope Benedict-Day 7:
Soon after Pope Benedict announced his retirement, I saw this quotation on facebook. I think it is very wise and want you to see it.
"Pope John Paul II remained in office so that he might show us how to suffer and how to die. Pope Benedict XVI is leaving the Papal Office so that he might show us how to live in humble honesty." - Sister Mary Theresa
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Day 7 - Novena Prayers for Pope Benedict
Heavenly Father, our Pope has shown us an example of great humility. May he be blessed as You promised in Holy Scripture for he is meek and humble of heart. Grant that the whole world will be moved by his example.

Prayer for the Pope:
Let us pray for Benedict, the Pope.
May the Lord preserve him,
give him a long life,
make him blessed upon the earth,
and not hand him over
to the power of his enemies.
May Your hand be upon Your holy servant.
And upon Your son, whom You have anointed.
Closing: The Prayer of St. Benedict
Gracious and holy Father,
please give to our Pope and
to us the faithful:
intellect to understand You;
reason to discern You;
diligence to seek You;
wisdom to find You;
a spirit to know You;
a heart to meditate upon You;
ears to hear You;
eyes to see You;
a tongue to proclaim You;
a way of life pleasing to You;
patience to wait for You;
and perseverance to look for You.
Grant Your servant the
Pope and us the faithful:
a perfect end,
Your holy presence.
A blessed resurrection,
And life everlasting.
