Prayers for the Election of a Supreme Pontiff

V. Suscitabo mihi sacerdotem fidelem, qui iuxta cor meum, et animam meam faciet.
R. Et aedificabo ei domum fidelem, et ambulabit coram Christo meo cunctis diebus.

Súpplici, Dómine, humilitáte depóscimus: ut sacrosánctae Románae Ecclésiae concédat Pontíficem illum imménsa píetas; qui et pio in nos stúdio semper tibi plácitus, et tuo pópulo pro salúbri regímine sit assídue ad glóriam tui nóminis reveréndus. Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. R. Amen

V. I will raise Me up a faithful priest, who shall do according to My Heart and My soul.
R. And I will build him a faithful house: and he shall walk all day before My Anointed.

Let us pray.
We most humbly entreat Thee, O Lord, that Thy boundless goodness may grant as pontiff to the most holy Roman Church one who shall ever be both pleasing to Thee, by his loving zeal in our regard, and, by his beneficent rule, deeply revered by Thy people to the glory of Thy name. Through Christ our Lord. R. Amen
