American Catholics Send Pope Benedict XVI More than One Million Prayers

The Cardinal Newman Society compiled this spiritual bouquet for Pope Benedict XVI following Archbishop Timothy Dolan’s call for prayers for the Holy Father on Palm Sunday 2010.  By Pentecost Sunday more than 1,070,302 prayers were pledged.  This spiritual bouquet was presented to Archbishop Pietro Sambi, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, who in turn sent it to the Vatican.

“On behalf of the more than 20,000 members of The Cardinal Newman Society and thousands more of the faithful, this spiritual bouquet of prayers collected during Eastertide is made of the feast of Saints Peter and Paul … in grateful appreciation to our shepherd for his prayerful Christian witness.  We beseech our Blessed Mother, Blessed Saint Michael and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul to pray for our Holy Father.  Oremus pro Pontifice!”
