If you’re looking for something to pray in the weeks to come, here’s the Collect for the Election of a Pope or a Bishop from the Roman Missal:
“O God, eternal shepherd, who govern your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love a pastor for your Church who will please you by his holiness and to us show watchful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.”
We will be praying it daily here at the seminary, until a new pope is elected. It would make for a good private devotional, as well, particularly for those shaken by the announcement of Benedict’s resignation.
