Novena of Mourning

A nine-day novena of prayer begins today in Rome with special Masses celebrated each day of the novena. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has prepared a novena booklet of prayers in English and Spanish for the repose of the soul of Pope John Paul II and for the election of a new pope. Each day consists of a reading, brief prayers, and a concluding prayer. The booklet is in pdf format and may be reproduced for use in your parish.
