Cenacle to accompany cardinals

Rome youth centre to host perpetual adoration during conclave

Catholic News Agency has a story saying that a centre for students and young people in Rome has announced it will host 24-hour Eucharistic adoration to pray for the Church and the cardinals in the upcoming conclave.

"As the apostles were united with Mary in the Cenacle at Pentecost, today again the cardinals pray in an attitude of availability to the Holy Spirit," the centre's chaplain, Father Fabien Lambert, said in a March 8 statement.

Adoration at the Centro San Lorenzo will begin one day prior to the start of the conclave at 11 a.m. local time and will continue "until the end of the conclave."
