Benedict XVISome people in Italy are planning to mark the first anniversary of the conclusion of Pope Benedict XVI pontificate on February 28, 2014 with a “Day of Prayer for Pope Benedict.”

The plans were announced on“La Vigna del Signore” (The Vineyard of the Lord).

There’s a desire to find a “way to remember and celebrate the historic resignation from the Petrine ministry of Pope Ratzinger, praying with and for Benedict.”

There is no particular way to observe the day of prayer except to pray for Benedict XVI.

It is suggested that one can follow what Benedict XVI typically does on a daily basis” 7:00 am Mass; 7:30am Lauds, Office of Readings; Sext at Noon  with the Angelus, 3:00pm Rosary; 6:00 to 7:00 Vespers and then Compline 8:30.

A prayer service is being planned for the New Haven, CT area.
