March 06, 2013
The College of Cardinals will gather in St. Peter’s basilica at 5 pm on Wednesday to pray for the success of their coming conclave, and have asked the Catholic faithful throughout the world to join them in prayer at that time.
The cardinals’ prayer service will begin with the Rosary, following by Eucharistic adoration, then Vespers, and will conclude with Benediction. Cardinal Angelo Comastri, the archpriest of the Vatican basilica will preside.
The cardinals have asked the faithful to join them in prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as they prepare to elect a new Roman Pontiff.
(The cardinals’ prayer service will begin at 11 am, East Coast US time.)
