Archbishop Burke to Rome


His Grace, Archbishop Raymond Burke of the Archdiocese of St. Louis has been appointed to the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, and has also named His Grace to the Congregation for the Clergy. His presence on both bodies will benefit the Church due to his canonical expertise, steadfastness and pastoral care.

Archbishop Burke (pictured here with Fr. Leinhart and another Abbot from the Institute of Christ the King whose name I should remember, as well as Bishop Braxton of Belleville (I think) and another Bishop I do not recognize) is the leader of Traditional Liturgy in the Catholic Church in the United States.

He has been a driving force in the building of the Shrine to the Virgin of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, as well as the convent for the Nashville Dominicans.

The Society of St. Barbara sends it congratulations to His Grace on his appointment and wishes him continued success in his calling to Rome.

The bishop on the right is Chicago's own Joseph Perry.

That other bishop would be Wilton Gregory (he was the black bishop president of USCCB) And CTK does not have Abbots, they are not a monastic order.

I'll stick with the title of Abbe' (French for Abbot). There are several at ICK with that title, regardless of the monasticism/non-monasticism of the Order.
