It is being said that a Conclave will be held in mid-March. Living in interesting times is indeed a challenge. Are we up to it? Jesus Christ would say, as He does always: "And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) Yes, we are up to any challenge in Christ Jesus, and He hasn’t and will never resign. He is alive and well and reigning at the right hand of the Father and present in the power of His Holy Spirit with us now and forever.
And the People of God say, "AMEN"
Perhaps, Easter will see us welcoming a new pope to the Chair of Peter. If we are called to wait longer, our great strength is our faith We will wait in hope and great expectation during the Easter season as Christ reigns now and forever.
Let Us Pray. - O God! our refuge and our strength, look down with favor on Thy people who cry to Thee; and through the intercession of the glorious and Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her Spouse, of Thy blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, in mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of our holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. Holy Michael Archangel, defend us in the hour of conflict; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. - May God restrain him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust Satan down to hell, and with him the other wicked spirits, who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
