“Exile of Cardinal Burke Draws Nearer with “Rescriptum”
Eponymous Flower has the story (link here): [Reproduced with comments]

(Rome) Cardinal Raymond Burke has played the role of the visible counterpart to the reigning Pope since the Synod of Bishops. Which was for many years until his death in 2012, under very different circumstances, played by the Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, from the Jesuit Order, against Popes John Paul, and Benedict XVI. Burke accused the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops of “manipulation” of Pope Francis having done “great damage” and described the controversial interim report of the Synod as a “betrayal”. The Vatican expert Sandro Magister sees his removal from the Roman Curia by Pope Francis move closer and references the published Rescriptum of two days ago.

[Looks like what was sauce for the goose, is not now sauce for the gander. :)]

A few days after the end of the Synod of Bishops Cardinal Burke celebrated Pontifical Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica for a Third International Pilgrimage of Tradition. Among the Catholics present, a mood was visible, which brought an American pilgrim to exclaim “Burke for Pope.” No one would express it publicly, because it has no place in the church and which is superior to personal desires, yet the hopeful wish was heard everywhere personal discussions.

[Oh my…..]

It was no different in Vienna, where the Cardinal celebrated a Pontifical Mass on November 4, under the patronage of Saint Charles Borromeo in the famous Karlskirche. The church was filled up to the margins with many young believers and young families. In his homily, he called on the holy patron, who presented the Council of Trent, as a model for Church leaders, but also for believers today.

Oh my! :) Oh my! :)

A must read, since article gives good indication of “undercurrents” running in European church circles.

Looks like Jorge and the Peoples Liberation Front of Judea are in a desperate race against time.

It’s must be BETTER THAN WE THOUGHT. :) :) :) :)
