By Ann Schneible
ROME, March 11, 2013 (Zenit.org) - The Centro San Lorenzo (CSL) International Youth Centre will be hosting 24 hour Eucharistic Adoration for the duration of the Conclave. All are invited to come and pray for the intentions of the new Pope, and for the Cardinals preparing to elect him.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament began this morning, and is set to continue until Friday, March 15 at 6:30pm.
The program for Friday will include a procession to St Peter's Square at 3pm, with the Rosary broadcast from St Peter's steps at 4pm, thanks to Aleteia's "A Moment With Mary" initiative. The event will conclude with Mass at 6:30 celebrated by Bishop Giovanni D'Ercole, auxiliary Bishop of L'Aquila, Italy, and Titular Bishop of Dusa.
Fr. Fabien Lambert, CSL, encouraged people to pray for the intentions of the Conclave: "Like the apostles were united together with Mary in the Cenacle at Pentecost, today again the cardinals pray in attitude of availability to the Holy Spirit. We would also like to unite ourselves with our cardinals and with all of the Church to pray and intercede for the conclave."
