Ad multos annos!

O God, the pastor and ruler of all the faithful,

mercifully look upon thy servant Benedict

whom thou hast been pleased to set as pastor over thy Church:

grant him, we beseech thee,

to be in word and conversation a wholesome example

to the people committed to his charge;

that he with them may attain unto everlasting life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
