On the anniversary of his priestly ordination, 29 June, the feast of Saints Peter and Paul, we invite you to join with us to present His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke with a spiritual bouquet thanking him for his fidelity to Holy Mother Church. Through these prayers, we ask Our Divine Lord and Our Blessed Mother to continue to inspire him, in a special way, in his priestly vocation and grant him sufficient graces to continue to be a faithful defender of the Catholic Faith, an intrepid guardian of Truth, and a devoted shepherd and loving guide leading souls on the path of salvation.

A CANTICLE LIKE THAT OF MOSES (DEUT. XXXII)
Hear, ye heavens, what I shall speak of Mary: let the earth hear the words
of my mouth.
Magnify her together with me: and let us exalt her name forever and ever.
O wicked and perverse generation: acknowledge our Lady for thy salvatrix.
Is she not thy mother, who hath possessed thee: and generated thee in
If thou leavest her, thou art not the friend of the supreme Caesar: for
without her He will not save thee.
Would that thou couldst understand, and be wise: and provide for thy last
As an infant without a nurse cannot live: so thou canst not have salvation
without Our Lady.
Let thy soul thirst for her, hold her, and do not let her go: until she has
Let thy mouth be filled with her praises: sing her magnificence the whole
Glory be to the Father, etc.

A CANTICLE LIKE HABACUC’S (III)
O Lady, I have heard thy hearing: and I was astonished: I have considered
thy works, and I have feared.
Lady, thy work: in the midst of the years thou hast quickened it.
I will praise thee, O Lady: for thou hast hidden these things from the
wise, and hast revealed them to little ones.
Thy glory hath covered the heavens: and the earth is full of thy mercy.
Thou hast gone forth, O Virgin, in the salvation of thy people: to their
salvation with Christ.
O blessed one, in thy hands is laid up our salvation: be mindful, O loving
one, of our poverty.
He whom thou wilt save, will be saved: and he from whom thou shalt turn
away thy face, will go down to destruction.
Glory be to the Father, etc.

And to this letter as well, like to the “dubia” before it, he has not responded.

The letter was in Francis’s hands back on May 6. But the prolonged absence of a response has expanded its nature. As has already happened with the “dubia,” the four cardinals now think it right that the letter be offered for the reflection of the whole “people of God,” from which arises the demand for clarification to which they are giving voice.
