Adopt a Cardinal

This is a syndicated post from The Curt Jester. [Read the original article...]

What about you? Do you feel the same way too?

  • Are you infinitely thankful to God for having given us such a wonderful, wise and benevolent pope in Benedict XVI.?
  • Do you sincerely hope that the Church will be granted a worthy successor: a rock of faith, a leader open to the Holy Spirit, a pope prayerful and holy?
  • Do you as an important part of the Body of Christ wish to contribute through the power of your prayers so that the Holy Spirit may guide, protect and enlighten our Cardinals when they determine the next successor of St. Peter?

You now have the opportunity to actively be part of this providential endeavour by having a Cardinal assigned to you, who you will support through your prayer and intercession during the coming weeks before and during the conclave and for three days following the election

This is from the site http://www.adoptacardinal.org

I think this is a rather cool idea, but one aspect of it raises a quibble or two on my part.

Pray for a short moment so the Holy Spirit may choose the right Cardinal for you, and then click the button below.

While this is theologically possible, it seems to me that the odds that the Holy Spirit is going to affect whatever randomization algorithm the site uses is rather small. What in fact we will have is pseudorandom number generator based on a seed state used against an array of Cardinal names.

Although the Apostles had a simpler randomization method when they threw lots and selected Matthias. I guess both methods are based on Matth.
