Do you recall that, last year, Card. Burke consoled a little boy who was crying because he couldn’t yet receive Communion? HERE
This is somewhat beyond the ken of most catholics, I believe. They might console a Questioning-status minor not yet able to vote more than once in the same pro-same-sex “marriage” referendum. But, I digress. This shouldn’t be polemic and… there I went and did it. Sorry! I am under the weather.
So, last year Card. Burke consoled a boy who couldn’t receive Communion. At that time His Eminence said that his time would come soon enough.
The day came!
Here is a piece from the site of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Wisconsin, which Card. Burke built in honor of Our Lady when he was Bishop of LaCrosse. If you haven’t visited, it’s worth a trip.
Go read the whole story. There’s a lot more to it than the simple fact of a First Holy Communion. The boy, Louis Martin, has had a lot of things to overcome in his short life.
There are lots of catholics out there who suffer from Burke Derangement Syndrome™. Oddly, you don’t see stories like this about their models.
