Did you hear the one about how Archbishop Burke was “promoted out” of the US?

From Patrick Madrid:

That’s what a great many of his Stateside critics would have you believe. But given the Archbishop’s steady rise in prominence, influence, and his accumulation of real power within the Roman curia, I’d say his critics are really just whistling past the cemetery. They know that he represents and champions the very things that a great many of them are implacably opposed to (e.g., the Usus Antiquior Missae, a clear, unambiguous, orthodox presentation of Catholic doctrine, confronting obstinately dissenting “Catholic” politicians and others who promote abortion, Catholic moral teaching on issues on sexual issues, etc.). 

Thus, the higher Archbishop Burke rises and the more powerful he becomes, Deo volente, the more effervescently will evaporate their hopes and dreams and fantasies of such things as women in the priesthood, the Church’s abandonment of its teaching on the immorality of contraception and homosexual acts, etc. 

Catholic commentator Diane Korzeniewski provides the salient facts about His Grace’s ascendancy plus a thought-provoking question about just how high he might rise.

    Archbishop Burke is some one I don’t know personally. I have only read about him. Unfortunately one can not always go by what one reads after Google search nor can one go by everything one sees on T.V.

    Generally speaking there has been much scandal in the Catholic church and I am inclined to agree with those who call it the whore of Babylon. (The Whore of Babylon or “Babylon the great” is a Christian allegorical figure of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation).

    So nothing would shock me if what is said about Archbishop Burke is true.

    What is more important is not to belong to the institutional Church but to belong to the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. According to Jesus, the Kingdom of God is within (or among) people,[Lk 17:20-21] is approached through understanding[Mk 12:34] and entered through acceptance like a child,[Mk 10:15] spiritual rebirth,[Jn 3:5] and doing the will of God.[Mt 7:21] It is a kingdom that will be inherited by the righteous[1Cor 6:9] and is not the only kingdom.[Lk. 11:18].

    Are you a born again Catholic Evangelical?

    If not get in touch with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal wing of your local Catholic church and attend the Catholic Alpha Course or the Life in the Holy Spirit seminars.

    We make up the Church and it is being sanctified.

    Unfortunately the tares and wheat grow side by side.Readings: Wis 12:13, 16-19; Ps 86:5-6, 9-10, 15-16; Rm 8:26-27; Mt 13:24-43

    The Parable[2] of Wheat and Tares

    “The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everyone was asleep his enemy came and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off. When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well.”

    Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'”

    Therefore step out and find the living relationship with the living God – Jesus. Then pray for others especially Catholics so that we all belong to the Kingdom of Heaven on earth – the bride in readiness for Jesus’ Second coming.

    Amen!

    Barbara
