Novena in support of the Holy Father

The priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) are recommending and supporting a short novena to be said publicly or privately starting today, February 14th through February 22nd (the feast of the Chair of St. Peter). This novena's intention is in support of the Holy Father's courageous work with the Society of Pius X (SSPX). As you know, he has had much opposition to his initiatives and the remission of the excommunications of the Bishops of the SSPX.

Here are the prayers the Fraternity recommends:

Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be.

V. Let us pray for our Pope Benedict.

R. May the Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.

V. Thou art Peter,

R. And upon this Rock, I will build My Church.

V. Let us pray... Almighty and everlasting God, have mercy upon your servant, Benedict, our Sovereign Pontiff, and guide him in your goodness on the way of eternal salvation; so that, we the prompting of your grace, he may desire what pleases you and accomplish it with all his strength. Through Christ Our Lord.

R. Amen.
