The Synod of Bishops of the Chaldean Church for the election of a new Patriarch of Babylon opened in Rome today, according to Vatican Insider (article in Italian). There are 15 bishops taking part in the election: seven from Iraq, two from Iran, two from the United States, and one each from Lebanon, Syria, Australia, and Canada.

The Synod began today with lectio divina and a spiritual conference. Tomorrow will be devoted to discussion about the needs of the Chaldean Church. The actual election will begin on Wednesday.

Prayers for a good outcome to this election.

To quote a Chaldean Priest with whom I am friends with on Facebook:

Quote
This is arguably the most critical patriarchal election in the history of the Chaldean Church. Pray hard.


Prayers for the Holy Synod!

I'm surprised the election is taking so long to be announced. Could there be some problem? A deadlock perhaps?
