Worldwide Novena for Election of the Next Holy Father
Beginning March 1, 2013, the first day when the Chair of Peter will be vacant, I encourage you to join in this Worldwide Novena for the Election of the Next Holy Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send down your Spirit over the conclave. Let the Holy Spirit inspire the hearts of the cardinals, that they may choose the man most pleasing to You, as Successor of Peter and Your Vicar on Earth. May Mary, Your Mother and Mother of the Church, be our Advocate. Amen.
Thank you to Mr. Mark Dunn, O.P. for forwarding this prayer from Dr. Mark Miraville, Professor of Theology and Mariology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
