Pledge to Pray


kofcPledge to Pray is a prayer campaign, launched by the Knights of Columbus, asking Catholics to sign an online petition and to tweet prayer commitment for the church.

“Until a new pope is elected, we ask Catholics worldwide to pledge to say this prayer daily for Pope Benedict, for the church, and for our future pope, and to encourage their friends and families to do the same ” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson.

For more info, and to pledge your prayers, visit PrayerfortheChurch.com or follow the campaign on Twitter at @KofC.


Prayer for the Church

O Lord Jesus Christ , Supreme Pastor of Your Church,
we thank you for the ministry of Pope Benedict XVI
and the selfless care with which he has led us
as Successor of Peter, and Your Vicar on earth.


Good Shepherd, who founded Your Church
on the rock of Peter’s faith
and have never left Your flock untended,
look with love upon us now,
and sustain Your Church in faith, hope, and charity.


Grant, Lord Jesus, in Your boundless love for us,
a new Pope for Your Church
who will please You by his holiness
and lead us faithfully to You,
who are the same yesterday, today, and forever.

written by Knights of Columbus Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore
