Like that four-year-old, sometimes only our Daddy will do when we are in need of comfort and reassurance to calm our fears.

Visit this website to adopt your own Cardinal. Let's put our trust in the Holy Spirit and the power of our prayers that our new Daddy will be every bit as wise and wonderful as our Papa Benny and that he will always point us to our Daddy in Heaven, God the Father.
O Lord, Be with our beloved Pope Benedict as he retires to a life of deep and intimate prayer with you. Be with our Cardinals, as they work to place a new leader in the Chair of St. Peter who will lovingly guide our Church. And be with all of us in the Church as we yearn for closeness with you and strive to cast aside our sinful ways in favor of the holiness You desire from us. Amen.
