Ad Multos Annos

Today the Holy Father celebrates the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the Sacred Priesthood. We thank God for Pope Benedict and offer our prayers on this wonderful occasion.

O God, the pastor and ruler of all the faithful,

mercifully look upon thy servant Benedict

whom thou hast been pleased to set as pastor over thy Church:

grant him, we beseech thee,

to be in word and conversation a wholesome example

to the people committed to his charge;

that he with them may attain unto everlasting life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
