The final Angelus blessing

Pope Benedict XVI has given his final Angelus and Blessing from the Apostolic Palace to the faithful in a packed St. Peter’s Square. He said that God is calling him to “go up the mountain” and asked that we all stay close to each other in prayer.”

Long Live The Pope
(A Hymn for the Pope)

Long live the Pope!
His praises sound
Again and yet again:
His rule is over space and time:
His throne the hearts of men:
All hail! The Shepherd Pope of Rome,
The theme of loving song:
Let all the earth his glory sing
And heav’n the strain prolong.

Then raise the chant,
With heart and voice,
In Church & school & home:
“Long live the Shepherd of the Flock!
Long live the Pope of Rome!”
Almighty Father bless his work,
Protect him in his ways,
Receive his prayer, fulfill his hopes,
And grant him length of days!

The Concho Padre
