Novena for Pope Benedict

The entire Church mourns the death of our Emeritus Holy Father, Benedict XVI. The US Bishops just released a novena that the faithful can pray for nine days starting on the day of Pope Benedict's funeral, January 5. This novena has been prepared to help pray for the Pope Emeritus during this time. The daily novena – lasting from his funeral on Thursday, January 5 through Friday, January 13 – consists of a short reading from Scripture or some other ecclesiastical text and some brief prayers, including orations drawn from the Roman Missal and the Order of Christian Funerals.
