To begin, for the readers of the Fishwrap, I’ll lead off with this.
And now the real thing.
Each summer, His Eminence Raymond Card. Burke organizes a conference for canon and civil lawyers. The presentations are always good.
So is the break food… homemade blueberry bars.
And then there were these cheesy things.
Still warm from the oven. But I digress.
Cardinal Burke’s talk was about “Discipline and Doctrine: Law in the Service of Truth and Love.”
He got into some of the sloppy language in use today and attempts to pit “mercy” against “justice”, being “pastoral’ as opposed to observing the law.
Next we had a talk by the President of Franciscan University, Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, “The Role of Academic Freedom at a Catholic University.
Of course he spoke about the second most ignored document in the history of the Church, Ex code Ecclesiae.
The Holy Door of the Basilica for the Year of Mercy.
