My New Hero

Raymond Leo Cardinal BurkeThe Sunday before last, I was privileged to be able to go to a Pontifical Mass celebrated by His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke (pictured). However, that’s not what made him my new hero. The Catholic world has been in crisis since the Second Vatican Council in the Sixties, and Cardinal Burke, along with three other Cardinals, has just made a significant step in resolving that crisis.  He is the only Cardinal of the four who is not retired.  He has already been demoted and sidelined by the Vatican for his conservative stance.  He risks further reprisals with this latest move, even though what he is doing is absolutely legitimate and even a requirement of his position as Cardinal.  May God rain blessings down on this very brave man.

  3. Excellent, my Dear Sarah! As a man of Eternal Questions, I have found Catholic Theology, Spirituality and Teachings to be Par Excellence, with only the Praxis suffering.

    While I love the present Pope, he has reason to give Answers to questions like these.

    Love and Regards to You. 🙂
