As they have done since he was installed as Archbishop, after each and every public Mass the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at St. Francis de Sales Oratory continue to pray for His Grace. This prayer is as follows:
Let us pray for the Archbishop of St. Louis:
O God, the shepherd and ruler of all the faithful, look down favorably upon Thy servant Robert, whom Thou hast been pleased to appoint pastor over the Church of Saint Louis; grant, we beseech Thee, that he may benefit both by word and example those over whom he is set, and thus attain unto life eternal, together with the flock committed to his care. Through Christ our Lord.
