Got this notice from the Knights of Columbus. Follow the link below and you can pray along with a video of Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Conn.

Novena for Pope Benedict XVI

All Knights of Columbus are encouraged to join in a special novena for Pope Benedict XVI, beginning Divine Mercy Sunday, April 11, and concluding Monday, April 19, the fifth anniversary of the Holy Father’s election in 2005.

This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.

We pray for the pope and for his pastoral mission, asking God to protect, strengthen and uplift our beloved Holy Father at this time of considerable challenge.

An initial supply of prayer cards has been sent to state officers, district deputies, grand knights and council chaplains in the United States. Additional quantities of holy cards (#16000) can be ordered using a requisition form (#1) and billed to the requesting unit as long as it is signed by an authorized officer. Supplies are available in packs of 100 cards. The first pack of 100 cards ordered by a council, assembly or circle will be free. Subsequent packs cost $3 each to offset standard shipping and handling costs. Individuals — members and non-members — can also order quantities for $3 per pack of 100 cards by calling 1-203-752-4451 and providing credit card information (MasterCard or Visa).

Because of the delay associated with international mail, members outside the United States are encouraged to

Please spread the word about this novena and invite others in your parish and community to take part in it as well.
