Pope Urges Prayers for "Ship of Peter"

ZENIT - Pope Urges Prayers for "Ship of Peter":

"'Let us ask the Lord, Who guides the fortunes of the 'Ship of Peter' among the not-always easy events of history, to continue to watch over this small state,' the Pope continued.

'Above all,' he urged, 'let us ask him to help, with the power of his Spirit, Peter's Successor who stands at the helm of this ship, that he may faithfully and effectively undertake his ministry as the foundation of unity of the Catholic Church, which has its visible center in the Vatican whence it expands to all the corners of the earth.'"
