Adopt a Cardinal and Pray for Him!
Jugend 2000 (Youth 2000), a Catholic youth group, has sponsored an innovative web page in which you are assigned a particular cardinal (randomly) to pray for before the Conclave, during the Conclave, and for three days after the election. If you are interested in adopting a cardinal visit the website at www.adoptacardinal.org.
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (Catholic Online) - As most informed Catholics know, the Cardinals from all over the world have gathered in Rome soon to choose in a Conclave a new Pope to replace Pope Benedict XVI who resigned on February 28, 2013, leaving the Holy See sede vacante, or without a Pope.
The choice of a Pope is always a monumental decision in the life of the Universal Church, and it is important that the Cardinals exercise their prudent judgment and be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit on their choice as to who will be the Bishop of Rome, Successor of Peter, and Vicar of Christ.
Jugend 2000 (Youth 2000), an international Catholic youth movement that was founded in 1990 after John Paul II visited Santiago de Compostela in 1989, has crafted an innovative way to involve Catholics in praying for the Cardinals involved in the process of electing the new Pope.
They have sponsored a web page-http://www.adoptacardinal.org-in which you are assigned a particular cardinal (randomly) to pray for before the Conclave, during the Conclave, and for three days after the election.
The website has become popular, and as of the time of this writing almost 500,000 persons have signed up to be assigned a Cardinal.
The website asks:
"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?"
If you answer the questions "yes," then adopt a Cardinal! The website will require your name and an email address, and it will send you information about your Cardinal.
I ran through the process and received as my adoptee, Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, the Archbishop of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo.
