Pope asks for prayer for his ministry of governance in the Church

During the pope’s general audience in St. Peter’s Square, he focused his remarks on his governance of the Church and the ministry of priests.

The pope said the duty of the priest is to "govern and guide with the authority of Christ that portion of the people which God has entrusted to his care."
 
"In a special way I also ask you to pray for my own ministry of governance in the Church, and for the spiritual fruitfulness of the celebrations at the conclusion of the Year for Priests."

Benedict XVI said they will meditate on conversion and mission and will renew their priestly promises.
