The Rosary and the Conclave

Catholic author and blogger Marge Fenlon writes:  

The College of Cardinals has called the universal church to pray tomorrow, Wednesday, March 6, at 5pm Rome time, 11am EST, for the upcoming conclave and the process of electing a new Pope.  

While the official start of the Conclave has not yet been announced, the Cardinals will gather tomorrow at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter’s Basilica for recitation of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and then Vespers.

Tomorrow the Cardinals and the Church universal will reflect on the Glorious mysteries of the rosary, which includes reflecting on the third glorious mystery: Pentecost.  Tomorrow, just as Mary persevered in prayer with the early Church, she will again persevere in prayer with the Apostle’s successors.  Let us join in prayer with the Cardinals during their time of prayer for the Church and its upcoming papal election.
