Nothing is hidden from the Lord Jesus. Let us then do everything in the knowledge that He is dwelling within us, so that we may be His temples and He may be God within us.

Pope Francis celebrates his Fiftieth Anniversary
of Ordination to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ on
December 13, 2019

Father of mercy,
we come before you with gratitude
for the fifty years of priesthood of Pope Francis,
whom you have made Peter’s successor.
Support him with the Spirit’s gifts,
so that he can continue to preach the Gospel with priestly zeal
and lead the Church with wisdom and strength and courage.
May his example of long and faithful service
be an inspiration to your priests and to all your faithful.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
