Defensor Civitatis...Pio XII!

O Jesus, eternal High Priest, Who didst deign to raise Thy faithful servant, Pius XII, to the supreme dignity of
Thy Vicar on earth and to grant him the grace to be a fearless defender of the faith, a valiant champion of justice and peace, zealous in proclaiming the glory of Thy most holy Mother, a shining example of chairty and all virtues, deign now to grant us, in view of his merits, the graces we ask of Thee; so that, made certain of his efficacious intercession with Thee, we may one day see him raised to the honors of our altars. Amen.

+Petrus Canisius
Vic. Gen. Civit. Vatic.
die 8 Dicembris 1958

Shouldn't it be Ordo Praedicatorum? :-)
