- make our lent for the Pope -
#1
Everyone sign up..... make this lent traditional. Fast/abstinence every day save Sundays, for the intentions of our outgoing pontiff and the outcome of the upcoming conclave.

Who is in?

I'm in. Maybe we could all pray something in common each day, or on a certain day of the week, with the conclave in mind. This could be definitive.

Perhaps either the Collect from the Votive Mass for the Propagation of the Faith:
Quote:Deus, qui omnes homines vis salvos fieri, et ad agnitionem veritatis venire: mitte, quaesumus, operarios in messem tuam, et da eis cum omni fiducia loqui verbum tuum; ut sermo tuus currat, et clarificetur, et omnes gentes cognoscant te solum Deum verum, et quem misisti Iesum Christum Filium tuum Dominum nostrum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

O God, who willest that all men should be saved and should come to the knowledge of the truth: we beseech Thee, send forth labourers into Thy harvest, and grant them grace to speak Thy word with all boldness, so that Thy word may spread swiftly and be glorified, and all nations may know Thee, the only God, and Him whom Thou hast sent: even Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.

Or, the Collect from the Votive Mass of the Holy Ghost:
Quote:Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere; et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum Filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate eiusdem Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

O God, who hast taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.

I'm in.  I think everyone knows this but just in case someone doesn't, those in poor health can substitute some other sacrifice(s), for the traditional fast and abstinence.

I like the Collect from the Votive Mass for the Propagation of the Faith - maybe we could each say that on a Wednesday? What do you guys think

Sounds good to me.

Both collects sound excellent. Someone should make a facebook group out of this.

I abhor FaceBook.  It is evil and Satanic.   :possess:

I will be happy however to offer daily intentions and Lenten sacrifices to this situation.   :incense:

re. FB, I've decided to cut down on my use of FB drastically (once a week to check up on emails) over Lent. Maybe we could just use this thread? I like how it'll have a communal dimension. Also glad to have Fisheaters to talk about this - the priest at our parish (admittedly, a very old man who doesn't get out much) didn't even mention the pope's announcement at mass today.
