Sede Vacante Day #12 Cardinal Electors Vow to keep Conclave Proceedings Secret!

  Prayer for Election of New Pope            
F.E. Lasance, Prayer-Book for Religious (New York: Benziger Brothers, 1934), p. 1061

With humble hearts, we pray to Thee, O Lord, that, in Thy goodness, Thou wouldst grant to the Holy Roman Church a Sovereign Pontiff who shall be ever pleasing in Thy sight, on account of his tender solicitude for us, and ever reverenced by Thy people, on account of his salutary rule unto the glory of Thy name. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

For all those who can watch the Mass on television or  internet, at 10 am March 12th, Rome time, and also for all those who are merely able to spare a thought & prayer for what is going on in Rome, please  pray for the 115 men who during the next few days will have the task of discerning the will of the Holy Spirit for the Church in electing our next Pope, and also for that man – whoever he may be – who will take on this superhuman burden for the sake of God and humankind. More Details....   

In the late afternoon the cardinals will then make their way into the Pauline Chapel and from there in procession to the Sistine Chapel singing the Litany of All the Saints! Click Video Litany of Saints 2005 Conclave

Asking St Joseph to Help
Cardinals Elect New Pope
St Joseph the protector and guardian of Our Lord and Our Lady, is also invoked as the Patron of the Universal Church in recognition of his strength and fortitude. God the father gave St. Joseph the most exalted duty of protecting the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who would redeem mankind and endow it with the most perfect and ultimate gift of Eternal Life through His Passion death and resurrection. To fulfill His Divine mission, God the Father entrusted His Son to the paternal care of St. Joseph.  St. Joseph is the epitome of a pure man: pure in thought, pure in heart; pure in body and soul – destined to be the most chaste spouse of Mary Most Holy conceived without sin. 

 The Catholic Church, born from the water that gushed forth from Jesus' side, and nurtured by the maternal love of Our Lady, sought comfort and protection from the snares and malice of Satan and his followers in the hands of St. Joseph, the terror of demons! We can expect that God also endowed him with an equally proportional grace to carry out such a mission in life. And certainly we can picture him as an icon of manliness and a pillar of strength that would sow fear among the powers of darkness.  Given the noble task under his watch.In recognition of this special place, the Church honors him with the highest veneration next to Mary.  More on St Joseph  the 3rd secret and the Fatima Message

In a post from his blog on Wednesday, Cardinal Dolan said that he would be beginning a novena to St. Joseph on Monday, March 11th, nine days before St. Joseph's March 19th feast. He invited the faithful to join him in praying for discernment in for the Cardinals in the election of the new
      Novena to Saint Joseph

Saint Joseph, you are the faithful protector and intercessor of all who love and venerate you. I have special confidence in you. You are powerful with God and will never abandon your faithful servants. I humbly invoke you and commend myself, with all who are dear to me, to your intercession. By the love you have for Jesus and Mary, do not abandon me during life, and assist me at the hour of my death.

O Glorious Saint Joseph, spouse of the immaculate Virgin, Foster-father of Jesus Christ, obtain for me a pure, humble, and charitable mind, and perfect resignation to the Divine Will. Be my guide, my father, and my model through life that I may merit to die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

Loving Saint Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, I raise my heart to you to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the Heart of Jesus all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special grace I now implore: (Mention your request Help for Cardinals to elect a Holy Pope). Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I am confident that your prayers on my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
