Mary Immaculate Convent-Tirupattur Initiatives Organized for Pope Benedict XVI’s Resignation As Bishop of Rome and Successor of Peter
In order to promote among the young people we had a special moment of gathering on February 28, 2013 to pray for the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and for the universal Church. We are grateful for his selfless leadership as successor of St.Peter and for all that he has done for the good of the Church and in a particular way for the young.
To express our gratitude to our beloved Pope Benedict XVI, we as an Educating Community of Mary Immaculate Convent gathered around the Eucharistic Table and implored God’s blessings upon him. To make the youth aware of what is happening in the Church and kindle their feelings of gratitude, during the assembly in both the schools; Mary Immaculate Girls Higher Secondary School and Our Lady’s Nursery and Primary School we had a special prayer moment for the Pope and the Church that God may give us a new Pontiff who may lead the Church in this era of our troubled times along the path of holiness. The decorated picture of the Holy Father was kept on the school stage and that was a reminder for the youth for the whole day. The special recitation of the Holy Rosary, quote to our Lady and the animated Adoration with special symbolic offerings helped the youth to deepen their love for the Holy Father and the Church.
At these prayer moments we prayed intensely for the Church that we get a leader of great holiness, wisdom, compassion and courage.
