"Prayer for the Church in Anticipation of the Vacancy of the See of St. Peter"

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Knights of Columbus – the world's largest Catholic fraternal group – is asking its members and all Catholics to pray for the pope and the Church in anticipation of Pope Benedict XVI's retirement, scheduled for the end of this month.
