Welcome Holy Father

Salva Papa Franciscus.
Willkommen Papst Franziskus.
Welcome Pope Francis.


The Community-in-Formation welcomes the Holy Father to the United States. We pray for a fruitful visit and for safe travels.

Let us pray. Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to your shepherd, Francis, a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, may he, as successor of the Apostle Peter and Vicar of Christ, build your Church into a sacrament of unity, love, and peace for all the world.

Daily Offering
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
