Everybody wants to greet him. He has a warm smile and a kind word for everyone. He freely blesses their religious articles. He listens and takes a moment to say hello. For once a bishop who vigilantly bishops the flock! This is a guy who has read Lumen Gentium article twenty-five. Read it and share it with your kids and enjoy.
We love him, too.ReplyDelete
And miss him. May the Lord bless and keep him always!
Mantelleta is what I also noticed, who is the prelate wearing it?ReplyDelete
And the higher prelate just behind Msgr Burke is Msgr Mauro Piacenza, another great supporter of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in the Roman Curia. Nice picture: they belong together indeed!ReplyDelete
The priest with the mantelletta is Monsignor Giuseppe Sciacca, auditor of the Roman Rota.ReplyDelete
Archbishop Burke is so greatly missed in the United States and in St. LouisReplyDelete
