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.
