Archbishop Burke has been a long time friend and supporter of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy. When we had our annual convocation in Saint Louis, his last year before being transferred to Rome, the CCC was called the "Burke's Brigade" by a national Catholic newspaper. When the CCC and ACCC met in Rome this past January for the Year for Priests, His Grace celebrated Latin Mass (Ordinary Form) at Saint Peter's Basilica for us AND he gave us a private tour of the Apostolic Signatura. His pro-life credentials and orthodoxy are impeccable and if there were ever a front-runner and exceptional candidate for the first American Pope, it would be Cardinal Elect Burke. Of course, we hope and pray that Pope Benedict XVI still has a long reign before that takes place.

Yours truly is in picture 3, (far left, how ironic) being one of the principal concelebrants with Archbishop Burke at San Pietro's.
