Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke
After a week of recuperating and catching up (along with all the normal daily duties), I have some time to reflect upon the great Pilgrimage I was most fortunate to attend for the Consistory of Cardinals, where Cardinal Burke was elevated to the College of Cardinals. More will be forthcoming about the meaning of the role of the Cardinal, the symbolism of his sacred vestments, the homily by Pope Benedict, and my general experience and impression.
For now, I leave you with one of the best pictures I have seen of our beloved spiritual father, fearless leader and Cardinal of the Church. He begs our prayers, especially with this most important mission entrusted to him by Pope Benedict XVI.
