Have you "adopted" a cardinal yet?

In the days leading up to the start of the coming Conclave (the date for which has still not yet been set), a website has been launched to allow Catholics around the world an opportunity to spiritually adopt a Cardinal, for whom one would pray and intercede until and during the Conclave. It's a great idea, and Lord knows these Cardinals have A LOT weighing on them in the coming days.

Here's a quick Rome Reports video about the site:

The Cardinal that I was assigned when I signed up? Stanislaw Cardinal Rylko from Poland. He's the President of the Pontifical Council for the Laity and he's been a Cardinal since 2007. How do I know that? Because the good folks at Adopt a Cardinal send you a picture and info about the Cardinal that you're randomly assigned when you sign up.

Whether or not you decide to "adopt" a Cardinal, please join all of us at CCM with giving the Cardinal Electors special attention in your prayers in the coming days.
