A Prayer Offered at the Beginning of His Pontificate

The new successor of Peter in the see of Rome, today makes a fervent, humble, and trusting prayer: Christ, make me become and remain the servant of Your unique power, the servant of Your sweet power, the servant of Your power that knows no eventide. Make me be a servant. Indeed, the servant of Your servants.

[L’Osservatore Romano, 11-2-78]
