AdoptACardinal: Cardinal Sean, I’ve Adopted You!

Over on Twitter this afternoon a new friend’s tweet caught my eye:

I’m late to the prayer party! It looks like has been up on Twitter since February 23rd. Since then, 82,393 (and counting) folks have “adopted” a Cardinal. When I entered my adoption papers at the website today I was randomly matched with Cardinal Sean! Imagine my joy when the following news greeted me:

My online “adoption” announcement

Along with an email in my inbox with this information:


You have adopted this Cardinal:

Sean Patrick O’Malley OFMCap, from USA, born 29.6.1944.
He’s been a Cardinal since 24.3.2006 and his function is: Archbishop of Boston, United States

May the prayer for your Cardinal be deeply blessed.

The website encourages the faithful to be a prayerful part of the upcoming conclave by praying fervently for all of the Cardinals, but in a special way for their “adopted” shepherd. I hope Cardinal Sean will be able to feel the prayers of this Fresno housewife all the way in Rome!
