Have You Adopted a Cardinal Yet?

If not, it’s not too late. 🙂

What is adopt a Cardinal? It is an online initiative to for pray for the Cardinals who are gathering together to elect the new pope. Here is what their website says:

Are you infinitely thankful to God for having given us such a wonderful, wise and benevolent pope in Benedict XVI.?

Do you sincerely hope that the Church will be granted a worthy successor: a rock of faith, a leader open to the Holy Spirit, a pope prayerful and holy?

Do you as an important part of the Body of Christ wish to contribute through the power of your prayers so that the Holy Spirit may guide, protect and enlighten our Cardinals when they determine the next successor of St. Peter?

You now have the opportunity to actively be part of this providential endeavour by having a Cardinal assigned to you, who you will support through your prayer and intercession during the coming weeks before and during the conclave and for three days following the election.

Once you click the “Adopt a Cardinal” button you will be taken to a screen to put in your name and email address, then you will get the name of the Cardinal for whom you are praying, his picture and a bio snippet (such as his DOB, the diocese he is Cardinal of, etc.) The information is also emailed to you.

This is a wonderful opportunity for us faithful to pray for all those who are responsible for electing our new pope. May the Holy Spirit guide them! Go here to adopt your “own Cardinal” to pray for.
