Novena madness
Today we are starting up another novena in my parish. We have been full of novenas lately (and I love it!). We started in Holy Week with the Divine Mercy Novena, being completed on Sunday, April 3rd in the afternoon. That very evening we began a novena for the repose of the soul of Pope John Paul II, being completed this past Monday, April 11th. We have had a few days pause now and tonight begins our novena to the Holy Spirit for the Conclave. Each day's Mass during this novena is for the "Cardinal Electors in Conclave". In addition, each evening we will pray the Rosary with some special prayers to the Holy Spirit and a prayer for the election of the new Pope. This is an exciting time.
