Adopt a Cardinal

Here’s a chance to do a work of mercy: Adopt a cardinal to pray for during the conclave.

    I guess I should adopt my former Archbishop, Cardinal Mahony. He’s likely to remain an orphan otherwise.

    • Andy, Bad Person

      I was going to post the opposite. It’s not fair if everyone picks Mahony.

    • Wm. Carnegie

      Everyone I know got Mahoney. I thought it was a joke until I got Dolan. Now, I have no doubt

    A guy I know on Facebook had his daughter do this and she actually did get Mahoney.

    I got Ennio Cardinal Antonelli.

  • Blog Goliard

    I got Antonio Cañizares Llovera.

    Either coincidence or the Spirit’s sense of humor were at work on this one: he’s the one Cardinal born the same month as my dad, and I once got lost in the catacombs (after regular visiting hours, and therefore with no one on duty looking for me, mind you) beneath his titular church in Rome.

    If I were more of a signs and wonders guy, I’d transmogrify this into proof that he will be the next Pope, and that I will be intimately involved with it all somehow.

    Well, the site has been so bombarded with traffic, you can’t adopt a cardinal (at least until they fix it, which they said there trying to…), so I went to the Vatican’s website, pulled up a list of cardinal electors and let my mouse choose with my eyes closed. And with that my mouse chose…

    Claudio Cardinal Hummes O.F.M. of Brazil. Then I got some background information with a mouse click and got to learn about someone I’ve not heard of before. Pretty cool if you ask me. This is a really neat idea. I’ll think I’ll keep him on my list even after conclave. :-) Thanks for the idea and the link. I know you’re not the only blogger to post this, even at this site so thanks to all of you for sharing this idea.

    I got Cardinal Farina, who used to be Archivist and Librarian of the Vatican Library. Pretty cool. I am a librarian.

    All of them are goed Men of God! Let us pray for them.
