USCCB's Loss, Vatican's Gain


We're losing one of my favorite bishops. Archbishop Burke of the St. Louis archdiocese is leaving to join the Apostolic Signatura. His expertise in Church law that formed his opinions and that so irritated the selfish, is the reason for the Archbishop's departure. His new position could be equated with that of the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court in that he will preside over the judicial arm of the Vatican.

I know that Archbishop Burke will serve the Church well in his new capacity, but I will miss his voice in the popular media. It was like a clear ringing bell amid the cacophony.
