Preparation for the Conclave

In this time of sede vacanta, as the College of Cardinals prepares for the conclave, the Society of Saint Sulpice joins the universal Church in a prayer for the election of a new Holy Father.

O God, eternal shepherd, who governs your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love a pastor for your Church who will please you by his holiness and to us show watchful care. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen

May the Holy Spirit descend upon the cardinal electors and fill them with wisdom and guidance!
