Tu es Petrus

Our Holy Father has arrived, and over the next several days he'll be speaking to us, so let's pray for all of us here in America, that we have "ears to hear."

Lord God Almighty, who hast made all the peoples of the earth for thy glory, to serve thee in freedom and in peace: Give to the people of our nation a zeal for justice and the strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with thy gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
