Blessed Benedict XI

7 JULY 2010. Today the Dominican Order remembers Blessed Pope Benedict XI, the second Dominican Pope and ninth Master General of the Order.


Eternal Shepherd, 
you made Blessed Benedict known 
for his great love of the brethren 
and his service to your flock. 
By the help of his prayers 
may we ever be ardent in our fellowship 
and with one heart be steadfast
in the household of the Church. 
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, for ever and ever.
