      FRIDAY 1 MARCH 2013

      INTERREGNUM - DAY 2

      THE YEAR OF FAITH

      Nothing will be hidden from you
      if you have perfect faith and love for Jesus Christ,
      since these are the beginning and end of life.
      Faith, indeed, is the beginning and love is the end.

      Clothe yourself with gentleness,
      and be renewed in faith,
      which is the flesh of the Lord,
      and in love, which is the blood of Jesus Christ.
      Faith, indeed, is the beginning and love is the end.

      . FIRST CONGREGATIONS OF CARDINALS THIS COMING MONDAY
      ---------------------------------------------------------------



      Vatican City, 1 March 2013 (VIS) - Today, the first day of the Sede Vacante, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, dean of the College of Cardinals, has begun to summon the cardinals to the first of the General Congregations, as provided for by the Apostolic Constitution “Universi Dominici Gregis”.

      This first General Congregation will take place on Monday, 4 March, at 9:30am in the Synod of Bishops Hall. A second General Congregation is also scheduled for 5:00pm in the same place.

      Following is the text of the letter:

      “As prescribed in the Apostolic Constitution “Universi Dominici Gregis” of 22 February 1996 at No. 19, analogous to the case of the death of the Supreme Pontiff, I have the duty to officially communicate to Your Eminence the news of the vacancy of the Apostolic See from the renunciation presented by Pope Benedict XVI effective from yesterday evening, 28 February, at 8:00pm in Rome.”

      “On communicating this to you I fulfil my duty of summoning Your Eminence to the first of the General Congregations of the College of Cardinals, to be held on Monday, 4 March, at 9:30am in the Synod of Bishops Room in the Paul VI Hall.”

      “The General Congregations will then continue normally until the complete number of Cardinal electors is gathered and the College of Cardinals decides the date for those Cardinal electors to enter into Conclave on the basis of what the recent Motu Proprio of 22 February established regarding modifications in the norms relating to the election of the Roman Pontiff.”

      “On my part, I am pleased to take this opportunity to send you my fraternal greetings.”

      . BENEDICT XVI IS WELL: READING, LISTENING TO MUSIC, AND PRAYING
      ---------------------------------------------------------------



      Vatican City, 1 March 2013 (VIS) – The director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J., related some information regarding the Sede Vacante and the first hours of Benedict XVI after having left the pontificate in a press conference this afternoon.

      Fr. Lombardi spoke this morning with Benedict XVI's personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Ganswein, prefect of the Papal Household, who told him that, yesterday, His Holiness, who was very calm and serene, had watched several news programs and expressed his appreciation for the work of the journalists as well as for the participation of those who had assisted in his departure from the Vatican and his arrival at Castel Gandolfo. After a brief walk through the Apostolic Palace he went to bed and slept very well.

      Today, as always, His Holiness celebrated Mass at 7:00am and then prayed the Liturgy of the Hours. In the afternoon he has another walk planned at 4:00pm, through the gardens of the Castel Gandolfo Apostolic Palace, to pray the rosary. Benedict XVI brought with him various books on theology, history, and spirituality. At the moment he is reading from a book by the Swiss theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar.

      Yesterday at 8:00, Archbishop Giovanni Angelo Becciu, substitute of the Secretariat of State sent a letter to all the diplomatic representatives to the Holy See informing them that, during the period of the Sede Vacante, all matters will be dealt with by the substitute and by the dean of the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Angelo Sodano.

      Moreover, this morning, the papal apartments in St. John Lateran were sealed.

      . MEMBERS OF THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS
      ---------------------------------------------------------------



      Vatican City, 1 March 2013 (VIS) – The College of Cardinals is currently comprised of 207 cardinals: 117 Cardinal electors who can vote in the election of the Pope and 90 cardinals who are over the age of 80. First in the order of the hierarchy are Cardinal-bishops. Currently six in number, these were originally the bishops of the "suburbicarian" dioceses of Rome. Still today the Cardinal-bishops are assigned one of these seven suburbicarian Sees, even though they are not bishops of the diocese. Alongside the titular Cardinal-bishops of those Sees in the hierarchy of the Church (with the exception of Ostia's titular who, since 1150, has been the dean of the College of Cardinals), Pope Paul VI added, in his motu proprio of 1965, “Ad Purpuratorum Patrum”, the patriarchs of the Eastern Catholic Churches. The patriarchs are not assigned any further title because the names of each of their patriarchal Sees is already included in their title as cardinal.

      Second and most numerous in the three orders of cardinals are the Cardinal-priests who are assigned the “titulos” (title) of the important churches of the Diocese of Rome.

      Last in the order of cardinals are the Cardinal-deacons who were originally the seven deacons in the Papal Household and the seven deacons who supervised the Church's works in the districts of Rome during the early Middle Ages, when church administration was effectively the government of Rome and provided for all of the city's social services. Cardinal-deacons today are given title to one of these deaconries.

      Following is the complete list of the College of Cardinals according to their respective order of precedence. Cardinal electors are marked with an asterisk.

      . STAMPS AND COINS OF THE SEDE VACANTE
      ---------------------------------------------------------------



      Vatican City, 1 March 2013 (VIS) - The Philatelic and Numismatic Office of the Governorate of Vatican City State has issued four stamps with the image of an angel raising the pavilion (“umbraculum”) of the Apostolic Camera, the work of Italian artist Daniela Longo. The stamps cost: €0.70 for mail to Italy, with a light green background; €0.85 for mail to Europe, with a blue background; €2.00 for mail to the Americas, with a grey background; and €2.50 for mail to Oceania, on a yellow background.

      The use of these stamps as postage is only available during the Sede Vacante, ending with the election of the new Pope. Their philatelic use is allowed afterwards and the office will continue to sell them to collectors. The initial printing is for 230,000 complete series. The folder including all four stamps costs €15.00. There is also a smaller folder that was created on Pope Benedict XVI's renunciation of the pontificate, which includes two stamps and costs €10.00.

      Regarding coins, a €2.00 one commemorating the Sede Vacante will be issued. It is the only one that will be circulated seeing that, according to the European convention with the Vatican City State, only one coin is allowed to be issued per year, with an extra one permitted in the case of a Sede Vacante. There will, therefore, be two coins in 2013: one for the Sede Vacante and the other, to be issued in April, with an image of Benedict XVI.

      The Sede Vacante coin, 125,000 of which will be minted, bears the emblem of the Cardinal camerlengo with the pavilion of the Apostolic Camera.

      There will also be 10,000 silver €5.00 coins minted for the Sede Vacante that will have a dove of the Holy Spirit and the words “Veni Sancte Spiritus” on one side and the emblem of the Cardinal camerlengo with the pavilion of the Apostolic Camera and the phrase “Sede Vacante 2013” on the other. Likewise, 5,000 gold €10.00 coins will be minted. This will be a very small coin (13.85mm in size and 3g in weight) and will have the same images and writing as the silver coin.

      The €5.00 and €10.00 coins are collectibles and, theoretically, can only be used within the Vatican. They are not legal tender outside of the Vatican.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------
      . WILL CARDINAL RAÏ BE OUR NEXT POPE?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      During the period of Sede Vacante we pray for a good man, a holy man, a wise man to be our next Pope. This man must necessarily be able to communicate with the world and every dimension within it and deal with the global Church.

      This man must necessarily be fluent in those languages required and demanded by such a task. Therefore, he must necessarily be fluent in Italian to deal effectively as the Bishop of Rome. Latin, goes without saying since he is head of the Roman Catholic Church and will become the leader of the Latin Rite, and it is the official language of the Vatican. He must be able to speak French fluently since 29 countries, not including the Vatican State, speak French as their official language. There are 12 other Dependencies that have French as their official language. There are also 7 other countries where French is commonly spoken but not the national official language. It has, for these reasons, been the official diplomatic language for centuries. In our global society two other key languages are immediately obvious that any Pope must speak fluently, English and Spanish. These two are now on par with mandatory international languages spoken globally. Finally, he must be a key figure playing a vital role directly in the center of the Middle East and consequently must be fluent in Arabic. Only one man emerges from these criteria, Cardinal Béchara Boutros RAÏ, O.M.M., who lives in Antélias, Lebanon.

      I was supposed to meet him a few years ago shortly after his new appointment as cardinal but that was changed and I only met with his assistant Pere Tony Khadra. From what I have seen and heard of Cardinal RAÏ, he is certainly papal material and has the look and sound of a Pope. He is a very distinguished and elegant human being as most high ranking Maronite clergy are.

      The name of Cardinal Béchara Boutros RAÏ, is an Arabic name. The name Boutros is the Arabic form of the name Peter in English or (Petros) in Greek. There is no letter P in Arabic so all words that have a P are spelled with the Arabic equivalent of it as B. For example, Pepsi Cola, is Bebsi Cola. What more befitting name should the successor of St. Peter have than Peter?

      Let us pray that God reveal to us whom He wants to place on the seat of St. Peter. Let us, therefore, pray to Our Lady, Mary, the Mother of God, and Queen of the Church to enlighten the minds of the Cardinal electors to see whom it is she and her adorable son, Jesus Christ, Savior and Master of the Cosmos wishes to reign on His throne until He comes again.

      The link and ties that have bound Italy, ancient Rome and Lebanon are ancient since there are many Roman ruins there like Sidon, Tyre, where Jesus lived and taught, as well as Baalbek, one of the wonders of the ancient world. But, the links do not stop there. The modern day Lebanese are descendants of the ancient Phoenicians whose genetic imprint is found throughout the Mediterranean world including both the Middle East, Near East, Europe and Africa.

      Pray for Cardinal Béchara Boutros RAÏ, O.M.M., that he be willing to accept the responsibility of the Petrine Ministry if it be offered to him by his brother cardinals.

      . TOMORROW'S HOMILY
      ---------------------------------------------------------------

      Saturday of the Second Week of Lent
      Lectionary: 235

      Shepherd your people with your staff,
      the flock of your inheritance,
      That dwells apart in a woodland,
      in the midst of Carmel.

      The portrait of God as the Good Shepherd in the Torah or Old Testament was fulfilled in the human person of Jesus Christ who declared Himself to be the Good Shepherd.

      Perhaps it is divine providence that brings these readings in our liturgy today because they are so cogent and salient, i.e., befitting or proper during our Interregnum period as we pray to Christ to provide us His flock with a new Good Shepherd to take command of the chair of St. Peter.

      . INTERREGNUM PRAYER
      ---------------------------------------------------------------

      Almighty God, hallowed be Thy name. Thy will be done for Your Church on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily Eucharistic bread offered on all Your altars throughout the world for our good and the salvation of the world. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Strengthen in holiness Your Priests, Bishops and Cardinals and call them into a deeper conversion and union with You so that they may serve You more perfectly. That Your Bishops, Priests, and Deacons may be tireless messengers of Your Gospel to the ends of the earth. We beseech You to look with love on the Holy Conclave and inspire them to elect that one among them You wish to serve as Your Vicar here on earth. Lead them not into temptation but deliver them from the evil and wiles of the devil so that protected by Your holy angels they may freely think, deliberate and choose wisely the Cardinal best suited to be the Bishop of Rome, Pontifex Maximus. Amen.

      during "The Year of Faith" and for the remainder of his life as a the former
      Vicar of Christ.

      PRAYER FOR BENEDICT XVI

      evil. Grant him excellent health of mind and body. Empower him to transform the
      world through Your most Holy Being. Empower him to convert sinners and warm the
      chilled heart that has grown cold. Enkindle the fire of Your love in him and in
      all the faithful so that together we may work towards fulfilling Your Most Holy
      Will for us and the whole world. Amen.

      . MAMA GILI GUILD

      The Mama Gili Guild was established several years ago to gather, collect, and
      publish information on Dolores Immacolata Gili (1892-1985) for an investigation
      into her cause as a Servant of God, as well as to promote her cause and to
      perpetuate her cult by directing prayer groups assembled in her honor. It has
      continuously enjoyed the ecclesiastical approval of Theodore Cardinal McCarrick,
      and the Most Reverend John Joseph Myers, Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey.

      Get a copy of the book about Mama Gili written by her eldest daughter Claudia
      (now deceased). Claudia Gili Phaneuf, Dolores Immacolata Gili: Mama Gili (Mama
      Gili Guild, 1989). The 2005 Edition is available from the Mama Gili Guild by
      contacting Fr. Dante: address and phone number below. The cost of the book, last
      time I checked, was $5.00 plus
      postage.

      http://www.missionariesofthepoor.org/

      Fr. Richard Ho Lung

      The Missionaries of the Poor (M.O.P.) is an international monastic order of
      Brothers dedicated to "Joyful Service with Christ on the Cross" to serve the
      poorest of the poor. The order was started in 1981 by Father Richard Ho Lung and
      has now grown to over 500 brothers around the world.

      The Missionaries of the Poor take vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and free
      service to the poorest of the poor. We surrender all rights to our own material
      possessions, bodily desires, will and remuneration for services rendered to the
      poor. We have no private possessions, no bank accounts and live in
      community--sharing all things in common. Our material needs are supplied by the
      generosity of our supporters who share our faith, embrace our mission and offer
      their own resources to serve the poor with and through us. There are three
      basic ways you can help:

      . EUCHARISTIC PRAYER IN HONOR OF THE SORROWFUL HEART OF MARY

      When the Eucharistic host is elevated at Mass say:

      "Eternal Father, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I
      offer you the crucified Body of Your dearly beloved Son, Jesus Christ,
      in reparation for all the sins committed against you and for the
      conversion and salvation of the whole world."

      conversion and salvation of the whole world."

      "during this important time, as the eve of the new millennium
      approaches unity among all Christians of the various confessions will
      increase until they reach full communion." John Paul II, Tertio
      Millennio Adveniente, 16

      "Keep close to the Mother of God as if you were the child Jesus
      clinging to her robes while walking down a dusty and busy crowded
      street and you will always be safe."
