From Bishop Warfel: “As you all know, the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI will resign from office on the last day of this month, February 28th. With the Office of Pope being vacant, the Cardinal Electors will be tasked with the responsibility under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to elect a new Pope to lead the Church. The Knights of Columbus are promoting a prayer campaign asking all their members as well as all in the Church to pray for the Holy Father during his last days as Pope and for the Church in transition as a new Pope is selected. Following is the prayer. Prayer for the Church O Lord Jesus Christ, Supreme Pastor of Your Church, we thank you for the ministry of Pope Benedict XVI and the selfless care with which he has led us as Successor of Peter, and Your Vicar on earth. Good Shepherd, who founded Your Church on the rock of Peter’s faith and have never left Your flock untended, look with love upon us now, and sustain Your Church in faith, hope, and charity. Grant, Lord Jesus, in Your boundless love for us, a new Pope for Your Church who will please You by his holiness and lead us faithfully to You, who are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen. Secondly, I would like a Mass specially designated For the Election of a Pope. I ask that each parish schedule a Mass to be celebrated for this intention, obviously prior to the election of the new Pope.” Our Mass will be this Sunday at the 8:45 mass. But you are encouraged to attend daily Mass as often as possible until a new Pope is elected, and to pray the above prayer daily.

Home in the Arms of Jesus —Mary Mogan Mother, friend, and long time parishioner. Mary’s funeral Mass will be prayed on Tuesday, Feb. 26th at 10:00 a.m. here in St Anthony Laurel. Her rosary will be here in the church, as well, on Monday, Feb 25, at 7:00 pm. To her beloved family and friends we express our deepest sympathy.
