I have adopted this Cardinal and will be praying for him before, during and for 3 days after the conclave.
He is one year younger than my Dad and makes the 80 year old cut off for the conclave by just three months. In 2003, Danneels was voted “Most Remarkable Personality” of the year by Flemish television viewers. He speaks Dutch, English, German, French and Italian fluently. May my prayers for this Cardinal be deeply blessed. Adopt a Cardinal yourself at adoptacardinal.org
