Pope Francis!!

“Pray To The Lord That He Will Bless Me”

pope francisBrothers and sisters, good evening!

You know that it was the duty of the Conclave to give Rome a Bishop. It seems that my brother Cardinals have gone to the ends of the earth to get one… but here we are… I thank you for your welcome. The diocesan community of Rome now has its Bishop. Thank you! And first of all, I would like to offer a prayer for our Bishop Emeritus, Benedict XVI. Let us pray together for him, that the Lord may bless him and that Our Lady may keep him.

(Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory Be… )

And now, we take up this journey: Bishop and People. This journey of the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches. A journey of fraternity, of love, of trust among us. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world, that there may be a great spirit of fraternity. It is my hope for you that this journey of the Church, which we start today, and in which my Cardinal Vicar, here present, will assist me, will be fruitful for the evangelization of this most beautiful city.

And now I would like to give the blessing, but first — first I ask a favor of you: before the Bishop blesses his people, I ask you to pray to the Lord that he will bless me: the prayer of the people asking the blessing for their Bishop. Let us make, in silence, this prayer: your prayer over me.

Now I will give the Blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will. (Blessing)

Brothers and sisters, I leave you now. Thank you for your welcome. Pray for me and until we meet again. We will see each other soon. Tomorrow I wish to go and pray to Our Lady, that she may watch over all of Rome. Good night and sleep well!

P.S. – Would you do Courageous Priest a favor and share this info with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Email right now? We truly appreciate it. Or leave a comment, we would love to hear what you think.

  • […] Pope Francis: Where There Is Calumny, There Is Satan Himself! […]

  • Our Holy Mother is in charge She is defending and protecting the Church. We must turn to Her and consecrate yourself to Her.Priests need to consecrated themselves to Her. Remember Fatima.

    To Jane,
    So true. But my question is, will the Pope know that Biden speaks with forked tongue ?
    I just wonder how much the Pope knows about “Catholics” here in America.
    Thanks.

    I understand Joe Biden will be coming to see Francis. I hope he is not planning to receive the Eucharist.

  • TG

    AP reported it wrong (what a surprise)saying he asked the people to bless him. It’s got some traditionists in roar. I heard him say to ask the Lord to bless him just as you have above. God bless our Holy Father.

    Pope Francis I will pray for you everyday.

  • Thanks for the translation – I watched on EWTN and there wasn’t a clear indication of what he said.
    Now I hope he will be asking our Lady to watch over the world … the U.K. especially!

    Thank you so much, Again, for your Site. It’s so great to have everything together in one spot! An RC Site that can be trusted to post the quotes of those priests, bishops & Popes themselves. The big-time RC Media is a minefield for those who are not well informed in the Faith, & even those who are, can be mis-led by the ambiguities that are rampant in many of them.
