Happy Birthday Pope Francis!

Saint Benedict Academy wishes a happy 77th birthday to our Pontiff – Pope Francis.

In celebration of the Holy Father’s birthday, we are asking for our families to pray the Prayer for Generosity attributed to Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Order of the Society of Jesus.

Eternal Word, only begotten Son of God, Teach me true generosity. Teach me to serve you as you deserve. To give without counting the cost, To fight heedless of wounds, To labor without seeking rest, To sacrifice myself without thought of any reward Save the knowledge that I have done your will. Amen.
