    “I hope the conclave will not go on too long. All I know is that I’m just taking in a small ‘carry-on’ piece of baggage. If we’re in there too long, and if they show photographs of St. Martha’s from outside Vatican City, my room will be the one with the laundry hanging in the window to dry!”

    ~Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, from his blog

    Today, 115 Roman Catholic cardinals attended the Mass for the election of a new pope. The cardinals then entered into conclave while singing “Veni Creator Spiritus,” a Christian hymn invoking the blessing of the Holy Spirit.

    I pray for revival in the Catholic church. That the Holy Spirit will flow through the leaders of the church, and that they know God’s will. That the Holy Spirit will give them wisdom and discernment to elect a new leader who burns for God, invokes passion and inspires the people to actively seek and pursue God. I lift up the conclave that they surrender themselves to the Lord, so that the newly appointed leader will not be subject to the politics and self-serving hearts of men, but to the highest authority of our Lord. I pray for strength, wisdom, courage, endurance, and humility for the future leader of the church. That he may be an example for the Lord’s followers on earth.
