Such excitement....

The Conclave has begun... our new Pope will be elected soon.  The Holy Spirit is at work. Our good and holy College of Cardinals are in prayer.  This is a momentous time....

Praying for all the Cardinals (especially Cardinal Anthony Olubunmi Okogie from Nigeria who we adopted more than a week ago and have been praying hard for ever since), for all priests and religious, and for all the laity as we Catholics join together in profound unity to pray for and anticipate the future.

Burke family you have adopted this Cardinal:
Anthony Olubunmi Okogie, from Nigeria, born 16.6.1936.
He's been a Cardinal since 21.10.2003 and his function is: Archbishop emeritus of Lagos, Nigeria


  1. I got goosebumps as they closed the doors...who will be our next Pope???!!!! Only the Holy Spirit knows!!!

  2. Black smoke today--- but maybe tomorrow it will be WHITE! :)

  3. My cardinal is Peter Turkson - I couldn't believe I got the only cardinal that I'd heard of! Besides George Pell, our Aussie cardinal. He's really terrific but he doesn't quite rate with the fore-runners.

    Praying with you, Kari!

    God bless:-)
