Sorry, Cardinal O’Brien is Not Available

Decline.

Our guest columnist was recommended to us by NRO’s Kathryn Jean Lopez.

Are you infinitely thankful to God for having given us such a wonderful, wise and benevolent pope in Benedict XVI.?

Do you sincerely hope that the Church will be granted a worthy successor: a rock of faith, a leader open to the Holy Spirit, a pope prayerful and holy?

Do you as an important part of the Body of Christ wish to contribute through the power of your prayers so that the Holy Spirit may guide, protect and enlighten our Cardinals when they determine the next successor of St. Peter?

You now have the opportunity to actively be part of this providential endeavour by having a Cardinal assigned to you, who you will support through your prayer and intercession during the coming weeks before and during the conclave and for three days following the election.

A new story that O’Brien’s ‘inappropriate behavior’ (Calvin Klein’s new line of cologne for men) was reported directly to the Vatican several months ago by a priest.
