Cardinals Edwin F. O’Brien and Theodore E. McCarrick spoke to Catholic News Service today about their reactions to the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the qualities the next pope will need to have.
I know this is a long shot but I attended the Holy Cross Preparatory Seminary in LaCrosse Wisconsin from 1961-1964. I remember that we had a Burke, not sure if his first name but thought I heard that the Burke I attended the seminary with was named Ray and he went to be the Prefect/Vatican Lawyer. Just wanting to confirm if that might be the same Burke.
I pray that the next pope continues Benedict XVI’s work of restoring traditions to the Church. I can tell you from experience, traditional Catholicism attracts the young people.
I agree, hno3burns. Traditional catholicism is superbly rich yet what can be said of the young flock that follow the carismatic chatholic movement around the world. Bless this wing of loyal cathlics too<3
Catholic To The End,
I pray that the College of Cardinals will look beyound their own number and elect Fr Adolfo Nicolas, SJ as Pope.
