On Thursday the 28th of February seminarians gathered on the rooftop of the North American College along with Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh to bid farewell to Benedict XVI. A video from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette can be accessed by clicking here. It was a moment filled with many emotions, as the beloved Benedict flew from the Vatican over the College to Castel Gandolfo. Let us pray for the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI as well as offer up prayers and fasting for the Cardinals as they pick up the great duty of electing the next Successor of Peter. May the Holy Spirit descend upon them and may they be covered in the mantle of the Blessed Virgin Mary as they prepare and enter into the Conclave.
