Archbishop Raymond L. Burke will be leaving St. Louis to the Vatican where he will head the Apostolic Signatura, which is the highest court in the Church. There are several resources you can read:
- Catholic News Service: Pope appoints U.S. Archbishop Burke to head Vatican's highest court
- Canon Lawyer Ed Peters gives his initial thoughts
- Fox news: St. Louis Archbishop gets Vatican Post
Now, some people have been expressing great disappointment because Abp Burke is involved with so many different things here in the US - important things. What will become of them without his leadership?
My answer is that we have to trust God. I'm sure that if Fr. John A. Hardon were here with us today, he would have the greatest smile on his face. St. Louis' loss is the universal Church's gain.
Te Deum Laudamus! Home
