Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat
eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius.
May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him
blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will
of his enemies.
Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum
Benedictum XVI, quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse
voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et
exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum
grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam.
Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.
O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look
mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict XVI, whom Thou hast
chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we
beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify
those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the
flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
