A Birthday Gift For the Pope

Birthday Novena
Prayer Warrior John-Paul Deddens at the PrayMoreNovenas blog has come up with a great idea.  He is hoping to round up a bunch of Catholics to gather in prayer for a special Birthday Novena for Pope Benedict XVI. 

A Hope for 84,000 Prayers
The Pope will be 84 on April 16, and John-Paul is hoping to enlist a symbolic number of 84,000 people to begin the special Birthday Novena on April 8.

How to Join Up
If you would like to participate in the Birthday Novena, please sign up here and the Birthday Novena will be e-mailed to you in time to join in.  You then have the option of trying out some more novenas (about one per month), or to unsubscribe from the site.

A great idea!
