Pro eligendo summo pontifice

Supplici, Domine, humilitate deposcimus: ut sacrosanctae Romanae Ecclesiae concedat Pontíficem illum tua immensa pietas; qui et pio in nos studio semper tibi placitus, et tuo populo pro salubri regímine sit assidue ad gloriam tui nominis reverendus. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum Filium Tuum, qui Tecum vivit et regnat, in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
We beseech Thee, O Lord, in humble supplication, to bestow in Thy great mercy upon the Holy Roman Church a Pontiff whose piety and zeal for our welfare will be pleasing to Thee, and who will merit constant veneration, to the glory of The name, by his sound governance of Thy people.
