Raymond Cardinal Burke
Hero, from the ancient Greek: ἥρως.
A person or who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage, bravery or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good.
Cardinal Burke: a man of distinguished courage and ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
In short, my hero. I was his altar boy almost twenty years ago at the church of St. Agnes when he sang Pontifical Mass in 1996 at the invitation of the pastor, a renowned church musician, Msgr. Richard J. Schuler, PhD. The splendor of the Roman rite is a perfect tool for the new evangelization.
May the Lord bless and reward His Eminence. Keep doing the Lord's work. GOD IS WITH YOU.

Query: Was this a Novus Ordo Mass? The only reason I ask is that, in the traditional Roman Rite, a bishop/cardinal never wears the biretta for Mass.ReplyDelete
It was Usus Antiquior. This is Roman custom.ReplyDelete
