If you want to watch the bishops, you can access the EWTN coverage here.

If you want to pray for them, you might start by asking for the help of St. Martin of Tours, whose memorial we celebrate today.

Around 371, Tours chose him as its third bishop. He was unwilling to take the office; the people tricked him into visiting a sick person in the city and then took him to the church. His poor appearance did not impress the bishops who had come to assist at the election, but the people overruled their objections and Martin was consecrated on July 3, 371.

Good thing those lay people hadn't yet heard about what their proper (advisory only! ) place in the Church should be, isn't it?
