Cardinal Burke's 40th Ordination Anniversary Mass in Rome
It was like a family reunion. Was great to see everyone. Cardinals, bishops, monsignori, nuns, seminarians, expats, journalists. Lots of familiar faces. A true joy to worship together in the Eternal City while getting caught up with friends from near and afar. I first met Cardinal Burke when he sang his first big Pontifical Mass in Latin in 1996 at the church of St. Agnes in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was a wonderful celebration etched in all of our memories.
