Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter

Today the Universal Church celebrates the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter. In one week, with the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, this Chair will be empty and the Church will enter into a time known known as Sedi Vacanti--the time of the Empty Throne.

Let us pray for Pope Benedict and his continued health. 
Let us pray for our Holy Church in this time of transition. 
Let us pray for the College of Cardinals that they, inspired by the Holy Spirit, may elect a worthy Successor. 
And let us entrust our Church to Christ, the Good Shepherd, who entrusted the Keys of the Kingdom to Saint Peter, the Rock on whom He built His Holy Church.
