Card. Burke’s address at Steubenville about the marriage and the Synod

At Steubenville, His Eminence Raymond Card. Burke gave an address tonight (Tuesday 8 Sept) which you all will want to watch or listen to. He and other speakers talk about the working document, the Instrumentum Laboris for the upcoming Synod of Bishops.

Skip to about 10:00 for the presenter.

Skip to 18:00 for Card. Burke

    Thanks for posting this wonderful video!

  2. acardnal says:

    Our next Pope….I hope.

  3. Father Bartoloma says:

    When the facilitator forbade questions about the motu proprios, I wondered if they were going to instead discuss who might win last year’s World Series.

  4. Frank H says:

    Prof. Kwasniewski’s paper sounds absolutely fascinating! Can’t wait to get the collection of these papers!

    I’m watching, skipped to Cardinal Burke speaking, but I’m confused…I noted Fr. Bartoloma noted above that apparently the facilitator forbids questions regarding the motu proprios, as I’m listening to the speaches…with the MPs in mind…and that they were announced prior to this speech…does he address them at all in the next hour or so of his speech?

  6. Swanson says:

    Wow, that first questioner sounded like an internet commenter.

  7. Scott Woltze says:

    Cardinal Burke prepared his remarks before the text of the motu proprios were released, and yet his remarks seemed to have anticipated the very arguments/policies of the motu proprios. He offers exhaustive, relevant criticisms, and his critique of “sentimentalism” is devastating. The whole panel was a breath of fresh air given what passes for Catholicism today. After listening for a few hours I didn’t feel like an outsider in my own religion. It helped that I later I went to a Solemn High Mass presided by Fr. John Boyle, and attended by ten or so seminarians. Bully to Archbishop Sample!

  8. WYMiriam says:

    Is there any chance there’s a transcript of all of this (for those of us who live in dial-up-land)?

  9. Fr. Thomas Kocik says:

    Regarding His Eminence’s remarks at 1:49:00—1:49:30…

  10. HighMass says:

    acardnal says: “Our next Pope I hope”….AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!!!!!

  11. May he live a very long and holy life and may his influence remain on the earth, inspiring other champions of God to protect the Bride of Christ until the end of time.

  12. Matt R says:

    This followed, as His Eminence mentioned, a Pontifical High Mass for the feast of the Nativity of Our Lady at St. Peter’s, the parish where Franciscan University is located. Students mostly comprised the servers for the Mass and the schola cantorum Franciscana provided the Mass propers and ordinary. Canons of the ICRSS, a priest of the FSSP, and several diocesan clergy served as the sacred ministers, archpriest, deacons of honor, and familiari.

  13. SanSan says:

    God Bless and keep Cdl Burke and all Holy Bishops who will stay the course with their eyes on God.
