Hace unos días recibí una invitación para unirme a una campaña que organiza la Sociedad Cardenal Newman, para ofrecer un ramillete espiritual por nuestro Santo Papa en este tiempo de Pascua.
Como ustedes sabrán, nuestro Papa ha sido atacado de muchas maneras y lo menos que nosotros podemos hacer es orar por él para que Dios le de la perseverancia final.

Te anexo el mensaje original:
Dear Fellow Catholic,
Urgently, we ask you TODAY to join Catholics nationwide in an Easter Prayer Campaign for Pope Benedict. . . and spread the word!
Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, is suffering "some of the same unjust accusations, shouts of the mob, and scourging at the pillar as did Jesus"!
Those are the words of Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, who on Palm Sunday urged prayers for Pope Benedict as he is viciously and unfairly attacked by the secular media and sadly even many dissident Catholics.
Pope Benedict is being assaulted with “unrelenting insinuations,” said Archbishop Dolan, “. . .as certain sources seem frenzied to implicate the man who, perhaps more than anyone else, has been the leader in purification, reform and renewal that the Church so needs.”
When he was installed as Pope five years ago, the Holy Father himself asked us to help him, saying:
“Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves. Let us pray for one another, that the Lord will carry us and that we will learn to carry one another.”
Pope Benedict has never fled from the wolves, and he remains dedicated to renewing Christ’s Church built on a foundation of strong Catholic identity. It is by his example that The Cardinal Newman Society and so many others are struggling to renew Catholic life in America.
We are assembling an Eastertide spiritual bouquet for the Holy Father and need your prayers for him today.
Please pledge to pray for the Pope during the 50 days of Eastertide by joining our spiritual bouquet.
Last year, thanks to your help, we collected more than 722,000 prayers for U.S. bishops, including 146,944 Rosaries and 28,862 days of fasting, as a token of appreciation for their strong stand for Catholic identity at Notre Dame.
But now, “The father of our family, ‘il papa,’ needs our love, support, and prayers,” as Archbishop Dolan has pleaded.
Catholics nationwide are praying for Pope Benedict, won’t you join us?
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle! And may God bless you and your family.
Yours in Christ,
The Cardinal Newman Society
¡Todo por amor a Cristo y a su Iglesia!
