This rich devotional Litany of intercession for the Roman Pontiff was composed by a Benedictine monk of Silverstream Priory. The litany invokes each of the beatified and canonised Popes in the history of the Church and includes, for each one, a phrase that alludes to a characteristic grace of his pontificate. Designed for daily use, the litany is divided up according to days of the week, with repeated opening and closing sections.
Prayer was made without ceasing by the Church unto God for Peter. — Acts 12
A Christian who does not pray for the pope is like a child who does not pray for his father.” — St Clement Mary Hofbauer
