Novena for the Election of a new Pope
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
V: Let us pray.
O, God, who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His holy consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Collect for the election of a Pope:
O Lord, with suppliant humility, we entreat You, that in Your boundless mercy You would grant the most holy Roman Church a pontiff, who by his zeal for us, may be pleasing to You, and by his good government may ever be honoured by Your people for the glory of Your name. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
V. O Mary conceived without sin,
R. pray for us who have recourse to Thee!
V. Saint Peter
R. pray for us.
