Pictures of a Solemn Pontifical Mass with Card. Burke

On Monday, June 5th, His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke offered a Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Oratory of St Mary in Wausau, Wisconsin, to mark the 20th anniversary of the church’s establishment as an apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King. (This took place in 2003, towards the end of Card. Burke’s tenure as bishop of his native city, LaCrosse.) The Mass was that of the Dedication of a Church; the oratory’s dedication feast is on May 31st, but was transferred this year, since it fell within the octave of Pentecost. Congratulations to the clergy of the Institute, and our thanks to Cardinal Burke for his great pastoral solicitude for all the faithful attached to the traditional Roman Rite - ad multos annos!

Of course, tradition will always be for the young!
