Bless, protect and guide our dear Holy Father, Benedict XVI
today on the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.
Bless him with continued good health so that he will tirelessly
work to bring more and more souls to salvation.
May he continue to be the shining example of a priest to all who have answered
the call to the priesthood.
May Your Blessed Mother Mary, cover him with her mantle of love and protection
all the days of his life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
