Editor's Note: I reiterate The Remnant's urgent call for prayer for Raymond Cardinal Burke who at this moment is fighting for his life in hospital and on a ventilator. We must storm heaven for prayers for this holy and courageous shepherd.
I'm not sure many of us fully realize how dire our situation becomes if, for whatever reason, God calls His good and faithful servant home during this most horrific moment in history. His Eminence richly deserves such heavenly reward, of course, but his passing would be felt by the Church Militant here below as another piece of the Divine Chastisement our sinful world richly deserves.
Please pray for Cardinal Burke, and especially seek the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of Cardinal Burke's magnificent shrine in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Long before the Pachamama scandal had landed, Cardinal Burke seemed to be anticipating the urgent need the world would soon realize to "flee to the protection" of Mary, help of Christians, the great Queen of Heaven who had once before reclaimed this land from the serpent and who will do so again. Let us do as Archbishop Vigano suggests, and entrust Cardinal Burke to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I add my voice to Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's urgent plea for prayers for Cardinal Burke, and I ask all our readers to share this post at this desperate hour.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Empress of the Americas, Pray for Cardinal Burke now and at the hour of his death. MJM
A Message from Archbishop Vigano
In these hours of great concern for the health of our dear Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, I invite all of the faithful to pray for him, entrusting His Eminence to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I also exhort the doctors who are caring for His Eminence to not hesitate to seriously consider using the existing treatments whose effectiveness have been demonstrated.
+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop
