Adopt a Cardinal

Over at, they have set out a unique spiritual ministry.

The conclave to elect a new pope will be underway soon.  I recently read the words of St. Alfonsus Ligouri regarding papal elections and he made clear that the most important thing that was needed was prayer.

We need to firmly pray for our Church and the outpouring of God's grace.  The website have made this prayer personal.  If you sign up, it will randomly pick a cardinal for you who will be voting in the upcoming conclave.  You will then spiritually adopt this cardinal and pray for him throughout.

I did it today and I was assigned Cardinal Daniel Dinardo of Galvaston-Houston.

So now he will be part of my daily prayer intentions.

If you get a chance, this is a wonderfully creative way to participate in the support of our Church as she elects a new Holy Father.
