SEND POPE BENEDICT YOUR THANKS AND PRAY FOR THE ELECTION OF HIS SUCCESSOR!
As you know, Pope Benedict XVI will be stepping down from his responsibilities on February 28.
I am going to Rome on the 20th for a series of meetings which will conclude with a Papal audience.
I would like to bring with me your prayers and good wishes for the Pope.
Please send me your message of thanks to Pope Benedict for all he has done for the Church, and to promise him your prayers.
And please pray for the Cardinals who will choose the next Pope.
At this link where you can leave your prayer intentions, you will also see the special prayer I have composed for the election of Pope Benedict's successor.
Please say this prayer each day!
And please invite all on your email list to likewise send their good wishes to the Pope and to say the prayer for the election of the new Pope.
The Lord chooses human beings to carry out these divine responsibilities. Like you and me, they appreciate all the help they can get. I assure you, they will be encouraged and strengthened by your good wishes and promise of prayers!
But please fill out the form today so that I can take your messages to the Vatican next Wednesday!
