    His appointment comes three years after he was removed as prefect Pope Francis has reappointed Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke to the Apostolic Signatura, nearly three years after removing him as prefect. The Holy See announced Saturday morning that the American cardinal had been appointed to the Vatican’s highest court along with Cardinal Agostino Vallini, Cardinal Edoardo Menichelli, Archbishop Frans Daneels and Bishop Johannes Willibrordus Maria Hendriks. Cardinal Burke served as prefect of the court for six years before being removed in 2014 and appointed cardinal patron of the Order of Malta, a largely ceremonial post. It was highly unusual at...

    Two of the four dubia Cardinals seeking moral clarity from Pope Francis over his controversial teachings on marriage and family have died. But this will not stop the remaining two cardinals from continuing the “important work of resolving the dubia,” said Cardinal Raymond Burke, one of the dubia signers, in a new interview.  In a wide-ranging interview with the Diocese of Parramatta’s Catholic Outlook, Burke said the “urgency of a response to the dubia derives from the harm done to souls by the confusion and error, which result, as long as the fundamental questions raised are not answered in accord...

    Part 1 Q. We are in the midst of celebrating the centenary year of Our Lady’s apparitions to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal from May to October of 1917. The eldest of the seers, Sr. Lucia dos Santos, in a letter to Carlo Cardinal Caffarra penned in 1983 or 1984, indicated that “the decisive battle between the kingdom of Christ and Satan will be over marriage and the family.” With all the attacks on marriage and the family that have occurred in recent years and which continue to escalate, do you think we have entered into that period of...

The award, given to those who have endured suffering in the fight to defend and protect life and family, honors the Cardinal for his work in “defending faith, life, and family from all quarters.” “I’m very honored to receive this award.

    Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga loses it In his new interview book Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga loses his temper when lashing out on Cardinal Raymond Burke because he stated that the controversial document Amoris Laetitia is not part of the Magisterium. Rodríguez insults his confrere as a "disappointed man because he wanted power and lost it." He insinuates that "[Cardinal Burke] thought he was the highest authority in the United States." Then he adds: "As Saint Therese of Lisieux said, 'I prefer to be small because if I happen to stumble, to fall, then the hit will not be so big; but those...

    ROME, Italy, April 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke has revealed in a new interview that he requested an audience with Pope Francis and has yet to receive a response.  Cardinal Burke also reconfirmed that Pope Francis effectively removed him from having any governance of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta while remaining its Patron. The American cardinal known for his Catholic orthodoxy addressed several other topics during the wide-ranging interview with InfoVaticana’s Gabriel Ariza. He said comments by the new head of the Jesuit order that cast doubt on the validity of Christ’s words on marriage must be corrected....

    Cardinal Raymond Burke said it's "simply a scandal" that pro-abortion and pro-contraception population control activist Paul Ehrlich was given a platform at a recent Vatican conference. Burke was speaking on Friday to a standing room only crowd at St. Raymond of Peñafort Catholic Church as part of its distinguished speaker series. He fielded questions at the end of his talk. He was asked about how "Paul Ehrlich, a great defender of abortion and a sworn enemy of the Church, was recently given a platform at a Vatican conference." Ehrlich's speech has caused confusion and has Catholics wondering what's going on...
  • German Newspaper Investigates Mysterious Trust Connected to Order of Malta [Catholic Caucus]

    Germany’s mass-selling Bild newspaper has reported that the Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, Baron Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager, accepted a 30 million Swiss franc donation ($31 million) on behalf of the Order from what Bild calls “a dubious trust” in Geneva. Boeselager denies any wrongdoing. The Grand Chancellor told the newspaper that over a seven-year period, the Order would be drawing 30 million Swiss francs from the fund, which Bild calls by its acronym CPVG. So far, the Order has received 3 million francs from the trust, whose existence the Register first brought to public attention in January....

    Pope Francis’ reform of the Knights of Malta could gut the very “heart” of the Order and up-end its 900-year-old constitution. Members of the Order who spoke to LifeSiteNews under condition of anonymity say such drastic fears have been stoked by the Pope’s unprecedented intervention in the Order in the last month. Pope Francis has appointed Archbishop Giovanni Angelo Becciu as his special delegate to the Knights of Malta and entrusted him the task of reforming the lay Order’s religious branch of professed Knights, called the “First Class,” who take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Members of the Order...

    Pope Francis has named Archbishop Angelo Becciu as his personal special delegate to the Sovereign Order of Malta. In a letter Saturday addressed to Archbishop Becciu, Substitute of the Secretariat of State, the Pope gives him “all necessary powers” to help the Order reform its Constitution and elect a new leader. Naming Becciu “as my special delegate to the distinguished Order” of Malta, the Pope emphasized that he will work in “strict collaboration” with the Order’s interim leader, Fra' Ludwig Hoffmann von Rumerstein. The two of them, he said, must work for “greater good of the Order and for the...

    The leadership of the Order of Malta denied the legality of a Vatican investigation into the forced resignation of the group’s former grand chancellor, but the commission established by Pope Francis said it “is completely legitimate and authorized” to investigate the matter and inform the pope. John Edward Critien was appointed grand chancellor of the order ad interim Dec. 14 after the order dismissed Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager as grand chancellor. Pope Francis has established a commission to look into the removal of Boeselager. According to one of the legal notes prepared for the commission, the pope’s right to be...

    MJM: I want to address the 900-pound gorilla in the room—the controversy surrounding Pope Francis’s post-Synodal exhortation, Amoris Laetitia (AL). The document, especially Paragraph 305, has been described by various priests and theologians, you know on EWTN and elsewhere, as “dangerous,” “very disturbing,” “very problematic,” “a big mistake,” “a direct contradiction of Pope John Paul's Familiaris Consortio,” and so forth. First of all, Your Eminence, how authoritative is AL, and are we talking merely about scandal here, or do these problematic paragraphs savor of heresy?

    Catholic Herald ^ | January 5, 2017 | Ed Condon
    The Order of Malta, like the Vatican, is a sovereign body. For one to investigate the other is simply incoherent Imagine that the UK Foreign Office recommended the creation of a commission to investigate the dismissal of the Canadian Finance Minister. It would, to say the least, raise some legal questions. But that is pretty much what the Vatican’s Secretariat of State did shortly before Christmas, when it suggested the Pope appoint a team to investigate and report on the sacking of the Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta. There is certainly some controversy about the recent dismissal of...

    …We need to distinguish between two initiatives of the cardinals, the first in formulating the formal doubts…the second…to make the matter public. I welcome the first initiative…It must have taken considerable reflection and prayer, as well as careful redaction, to have formulated the doubts so precisely…the doubts are very well presented, go to the nub of the issues at stake and are more than justified. They are not exhaustive and have enormous implications...The second initiative, to go public, leaves me in some doubt;…the issues raised are of fundamental significance for the whole of the Church, but…it could appear that this…opens...

    The campaign of insults and name calling against Cardinal Burke continued over Christmas in so called "progressive" Catholic publications. Since Cardinal Burke, and the other cardinals, released the dubia to the people of God in November they have been subjected to a campaign of personal attacks and insults. On Christmas Day the German daily Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger published an interview with the former Franciscan priest, Brazilian Leonardo Boff that attacked Cardinal Burke. Boff mocked Cardinal Burke as the "Donald Trump of the Catholic church", adding that unlike Donald Trump " Burke has now been "sidelined" in the Roman Curia." (Boff is...

    Has the Pope appointed an external commissioner to the Order of Malta? Pope Francis undeniably likes the strategy of appointing external commissioners as he has already adopted this draconian measure against two religious communities considered too “traditional”: the Franciscans of the Immaculate and the religious of the Incarnate Word. Further, it is not by chance that the announcement of a commission to “gather suitable elements to inform the Holy See thoroughly and swiftly with regard to the matter which has recently involved the Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, Mr. Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager”, was given by the Vatican...
