The Newest Addition to Our Family!
Early this morning over my much needed coffee, I adopted a Cardinal, and WOWZA… I got the Vicar General of His Holiness for the Diocese of Rome, Archpriest of the papal Lateran Basilica and Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Lateran University, Cardinal Agostino Vallini. This is where the body of Christ astonishes me—to think this great holy man will prosper from my simple meager prayers. God is so good allowing us all to play our part in building up His kingdom.
If Cardinal Vallini thought his mother hovered over him back in his childhood days in Barra, he ain’t seen noth’n yet! I’m bombarding Our Blessed Mother with prayer asking her to be at his side constantly and to bring her Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to be with the Cardinal always to guide his every decision.
Come Holy Spirit living in Mary, watch over my newly adopted son… um, I mean Cardinal.
Check out the website Visit AdoptACardinal.org It's awesome! It 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.
