Prayer for a Deceased Pope From the Roman Breviary

O God, who in Thine ineffable providence didst will that Thy servant, Benedict, shouldst be numbered amongst the high priests, grant, we beseech Thee, that he who on earth didst rule in place of Thine Only-Begotten Son may forevermore be joined to the fellowship of Thine holy pontiffs.
Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
