Confraternity of St. Peter Daily Prayer
Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus, born to give testimony to the Truth, Thou who lovest unto the end those whom Thou hast chosen, kindly hear our prayers for our pastors.
Thou who knowest all things, knowest that they love Thee and can do all things in Thee who strengthenest them.
Sanctify them in Truth. Pour into them, we beseech Thee, the Spirit whom Thou didst give to Thy apostles, who would make them, in all things, like unto Thee.
Receive the homage of love which they offer up to Thee, who hast graciously received the threefold confession of Peter.
And so that a pure oblation may everywhere be offered without ceasing unto the Most Holy Trinity, graciously enrich their number and keep them in Thy love, who art one with the Father and the Holy Ghost, to whom be glory and honour forever.
Domine Jesu, in testimonium Veritatis natus, qui usque in finem diligis quos elegeris, exaudi benigne preces nostras pro nostris pastoribus.
Tu qui omnia nosti, scis quia amant Te et omnia possunt in Te qui eos confortas : sanctifica eos in Veritate, infunde eis, quæsumus, Spiritum quem Apostolis tuis dedisti, qui eos in omnibus Tui similes efficiat.
Accipe quod Tibi tribuunt testimonium amoris, qui triplici Petri confessioni benignus annuisti.
Et ut oblatio munda sine intermissione Sanctissimæ Trinitati ubique offeratur, novam eis propitius adjunge prolem, et omnes jugiter in Tua serva caritate, qui cum Patre et eodem Spiritu Sancto unus es Deus, cui gloria et honor in sæcula.
