    Catholic Review ^ | 5/9/14 | George P. Matysek Jr.
    When considering the suppression of parishes or the closing of church buildings, bishops should hew closely to canon law not simply because it’s a legal requirement of the church, Cardinal Raymond L. Burke said, but because it helps foster unity. In a May 7 interview with the Catholic Review, the prefect of the Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, the Vatican’s highest court, said following proper procedures helps ensure legitimate decisions. “When we don’t follow the requirements of the law, then people rightly claim that they’ve been aggrieved by this,” said Cardinal Burke, who was a featured speaker at the...

    ROME, March 20, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – “The priest’s refusal to give Holy Communion is a prime act of pastoral charity, helping the person in question to avoid sacrilege and safeguarding the other faithful from scandal,” said American Cardinal Raymond Burke in an interview published exclusively in English today by LifeSiteNews. Burke was responding to the question of how a priest should proceed when he encounters a Catholic politician presenting him or herself for Communion while at the same time publicly supporting abortion or homosexual “marriage.” “The exclusion of those who persist in manifest and grave sin, after having been duly...

    "Yesterday [Saturday, January 11, 2014], there was a public demonstration in the Piazza Santi Apostoli led by “Manif pour Tous—Italia”, in defense of the natural family and against the approval of a law concerning homophobia, now in discussion in the Parliament. The purpose of the demonstration (just like those in the past organized in the whole of Italy) is to safeguard freedom of thought and opinion (Article 21 in the Italian Constitution), and to safeguard the natural family, of which the Constitution speaks in Articles 29, 30 and 32, based on marriage between a man and a woman. ...The demonstration...

  • ABC Falsely Reports Pope Removed “Outspoken Critic of Abortion” From Vatican Court

    Tuesday’s Good Morning America simply didn’t have its facts straight in their rush to portray Pope Francis as a crypto-liberal. Amy Robach hyped that the pontiff “removed an outspoken critic of abortion and same-sex marriage from a powerful post within the Church. Conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke…was head of the Vatican’s highest court.” Robach then asserted that “this move is seen as reinforcing the Pope’s vision for a more inclusive church.” However, Cardinal Burke is still the prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura – the equivalent of the Supreme Court for the Catholic Church. The Pope actually declined...

    In the clearest statement of what’s at stake for Catholic employers when it comes to the Obamacare contraception mandate, a leading Catholic cardinal recently said that it is, in fact, a sin for employers to comply with the mandate. Cardinal Raymond Burke told EWTN’s Thomas McKenna that Catholic employers would not only be guilty of material cooperation with sin, but also formal cooperation because they would knowingly and deliberately be providing employees with contraception: ~ ~ ~ Thomas McKenna: “So a Catholic employer, really getting down to it, he does not, or she does not provide this because that way...

    VATICAN, November 28, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One of the highest ranking cardinals in the Vatican has said that the United States is “well on the way” to the persecution of Christians. Cardinal Raymond Burke Cardinal Raymond Burke, former Archbishop of St. Louis and now the head of the Vatican’s highest court, told Catholic News Agency that he could envision a time when the Catholic Church in the U.S., “even by announcing her own teaching,” is accused of “engaging in illegal activity, for instance, in its teaching on human sexuality.” Asked if the cardinal could even see American Catholics being arrested...

    ---- ROME, August 4, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Top officials at the Vatican are throwing their support behind pro-life Catholic leaders campaigning against dioceses allowing pro-abortion politicians receive Holy Communion, says one such leader. American Life League President Judie Brown spoke with LifeSiteNews yesterday about her recent trip to Rome, where she spoke with Vatican officials about Communion for pro-abortion politicians and the changing pro-life landscape in America.  Cardinal Raymond Burke told Brown to be “persistent” in her campaign to have Canon 915 enforced, she said. Canon 915 states: “Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed...

    Last week we saw a dramatic swing of the Catholic vote back to the Republicans. In 2008 Catholics had voted for Democrats by a wide 55/42 margin making Tuesday’s results all the more stunning. The preliminary numbers show Catholics supported Republicans at a rate of 54/44, almost a complete reversal. Should numbers like these repeat themselves in 2012 the Democrats could be reduced to merely a Northeast and coastal Party with some rare representation in America’s heartland. It’s the Pro life issue While not exclusively comprised of Catholics, the Pro-life “Susan B. Anthony List” (SBAL) targeted 22 pro abortion Democrat...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A former Catholic cardinal and a leading pro-abortion "Catholic" group have blasted comments by St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke who said he would deny communion to Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani because of his position favoring abortion. Earlier this month, Burke said he would deny communion to Giuliani. "If the question is about a Catholic who is publicly espousing positions contrary to the moral law, and I know that person knows it, yes I would [deny communion]," Burke told the St. Louis Post Dispatch. He said anyone who administers Catholic communion can't knowingly give it to...
