Check out this video from the Institute of Christ the King. They have an overview of their “ordination week” with snippets of tonsure through ordination to the priesthood.
You get the impression that they take these things seriously.
I would not have minded at all being ordained in that kind of rite. Of course, I had St. John Paul II as my ordaining bishop, in St. Peter’s. But… Cardinal Burke in the traditional rite…?
You can tell a great deal from architecture and ornament, ceremony and music, about exactly what the people who made them believes about the Church.
I admit that I can do without guys in bicorn hats, but the shot at the end with Burke’s egress in the unreduced cappa magna is terrific. It reminds us all that Cardinals are called to the kind of Faith that might wind up with their own blood running down those steps in martyrdom.
That’ll trigger some the Francis Squad.
