More thoughts on Archbishop Burke and St. Louis

Just a couple of more thoughts about the big fundraising dinner in St. Louis last Saturday night, the one at which pro-abortion entertainers mocked Archbishop Burke for not attending.

How could any Catholic sit there in the audience and not stand up and rebuke the finks for mocking the Archbishop?

The answer is that no Catholic worth the name would be in the audience in the first place.

The answer also is that many in the audience have been anti-life in their personal lives, by using contraceptives, getting sterilized and even being complicit in aborting babies.

The answer also is that many other Catholics, including everyone from cardinals on down, have undercut good Catholic pro-life shepherds such as Archbishop Burke by consorting with pro-aborts themselves and otherwise compromising with the anti-life forces, the culture of death.

There are more answers, but that is enough for starters.

I don't know about you, but I would sure like to hear Cardinal Mahony loudly and clearly come to the defense of Archbishop Burke. The rest of the US bishops should do the same. That would help teach American Catholics what is right.

No, I do not expect that to happen. But it ought to.

A reminder: All Archbishop Burke did was, away back in February, ask the foundation to get a different star for the fundraiser. They refused to; the fault is theirs, not his.

For those of you not familiar with Archbishop Burke, here is a picture of him saying Mass in his diocese. Cardinal Mahony should take some notes.

As a Catholic living in St. Louis, my only concern about Archbishop Burke is that if he keeps taking such courageous stands in defense of the faith, someone at the Vatican is going to notice and he'll be given the red hat and sent to another diocese.

Judging by the screams coming from the pro-death camp, we can't afford to lose him.

Dear Mike,

Thanks for the perspective! May we wind up with holy, pro-life bishops in every see in the USA!
