image for 'My Sweet Lord' Becomes Roman Catholic Prayer
A New Prayer For Roman Catholics

Vatican City - Pope Benedict XVI held a special Mass today in Vatican City to welcome a new prayer into the Roman Catholic Church. The prayer is a well-know song from ex-Beatle George Harrison called 'My Sweet Lord'. The 30-year old song is a favourite of the pontiff, and millions of catholics know the words already.

Pope Benedict says the words to 'My Sweet Lord' always brings tears to his eyes: "It's a very sensitive song about mankind's desire to know God." stated the pope. "It's also a very sensitive song about mankind's love for God, and God's love for the human race." he said, while choking back some fresh tears.

The pope also plans to make George Harrison a saint, even though the ex-Beatle was not a Roman Catholic.

"The Church believes George Harrison is now in Heaven with his Sweet Lord!" proclaimed the pope at the special Mass. "The Church believes Saint George of the Beatles was inspired by the Holy Spirit when he wrote 'My Sweet Lord'--and maybe the Shirelles too." continued the pontiff.

The pontiff also predicted the song 'would eventually become more popular than the Beatles and that it would be said at Mass for thousands of years in the future.
