Pope readmitted to Rome hospital

Remember the Holy Father in your prayers and sacrifices today. I have been putting off writing a tribute to the Holy Father but I think I will have to start soon. I can't imagine that his body can take much more punishment.

Prayer for the Pope
V. Let us pray for John Paul, the Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, give him a long life, make him blessed upon the earth, and may the Lord not hand him over to the power of his enemies.

V. May your hand be upon your holy servant.
R. And upon your son whom you have anointed.

V. Let us pray.
O God, the Pastor and Ruler of all the faithful, look down, in your mercy, upon your servant, John Paul, whom you have appointed to preside over your Church; and grant, we beseech you, that both by word and example, he may edify all those under his charge; so that, with the flock entrusted to him, he may arrive at length unto life everlasting.
R. Amen.
