Let us pray for the health of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. The Vatican confirmed Wednesday that he has experienced a sudden decline in his health but is stable and under medical care. Today Pope Francis asked for prayers for Benedict XVI’s health.
Let us pray.
Almighty and Eternal God,
You are the everlasting health of
those who believe in You.
Hear our prayers for your sick servant Benedict
for whom we implore the aid of Your tender mercy,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
