FROM THE DAILY BEAST

Posted by Tim

Note: Personally I am a fan and supporter of Cardinal Burke and have full faith that he is doing the right thing to the best that he is permitted within the confines of the Vatican's rules and regs. I also find it a blessing that Rome chose to send him to Guam as it gives exponentially more attention to what Apuron and Kiko Arguello tried to get away with.

CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER

The Pope Ships His American Enemy To the Other Side of the World

An American cardinal who opposes Pope Francis has just been sent to the remote Pacific island of Guam.

    I have a great respect trust confidence in the person of Cardinal Burke.

  2. I had the misfortune of working directly with several of Burke's close associates for several years.

    IMO there is nothing even remotely likeable about that pack of mega-Pharisees. I wouldn't trust any of them as far as I could spit the Brooklyn Bridge.

  3. How could sending Cardinal Burke to Guam for a few days to investigate Apuron's evil deeds be an "exiling" of Cardinal Burke for asking the Pope to clarify what he means about divorced Catholics being able to receive the sacraments; and firing a Malta Knight for allowing condoms to be given to prostitutes? Just because he held such high posts in the Vatican, does going to Guam to investigate the evil deeds of an Archbishop who committed crimes against young children and screwed up the administration of his Archdiocese, mean a major demotion? I don't think so. I think sending a very experienced jurist is what we need to defrock Apuron. I am sure Cardinal Burke will see and hear all the ugly details and evidence of Apruon's reign and sex abuse crimes. To do what is right, he will certainly come to the same conclusion that we on Guam have come to for the past three years: Apuron committed all these misdeed of sexual abuse on minors; financial mismanagement of the Archdiocese; allowing a non-Catholic, heretical sect (the Neocatechumenal Way) to infiltrate the Archdiocese and control him to do their bidding; by joining the Neocatechumenal Way community in Agana, he effectively abdicated his Archbishopric to Pius the Putrid Pissant, chief catechist of the Neocatechumenal Way; and that he, Apuron, neglected his Flock ever since he became Archbishop of Agana. If I was a betting man, I believe strongly that Apuron will be defrocked; the Neocatechumenal Way will be exposed for what it is: A "Protestant-Jewish Community with a Catholic Decoration" and a "Trojan Horse within the Church" - Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

    1. I definitely cannot imagine Cardinal Burke being OK with the liturgical nightmare that is an NCW "celebration". He is very observant of liturgical rubric and I hope he is able to address the abuses of the NCW however it may be beyond the focus of his current mission on Guam.

    2. I wholeheartedly agree with you (Anon@5:12) that though the liturgical nightmare of the NCW may be beyond the focus of his current mission on Guam, an occasion may arise for Cardinal Burke to speak to the heretical behavior of the NCW, while he is still here on our island, and push it right on the faces of the NCW leadership here. I see Sandavi’s comment that it is unlikely that Cardinal Burke will address this issue, especially that Burke is now – sadly – not a member of the Congregation of Divine Worship anymore. I hope, however, that the opportunity presents itself for Cardinal Burke to do so. Cardinal Filoni may yell “foul” should that ever happen. That will only solidify Filoni’s “mission” for the NCW to retain its hold on RMS, and the proliferation of NCW heresy within our midst. (JRSA: 2/18/17)

    I think Apuron and Camacho were ghastly examples of human beings who have caused so much damage to the church.I really can't determine which of them smells the greater stench of sulphur. So we need Holy priests like Cardinal Burke to really help us. I mean do you honestly see anyone on Guam or Saipan who breaths trust. I do believe Archbishop Byrnes to be a good man but it takes time to build trust.We cannot give our trust so easy.

    1. Agreed about Apuron and Camacho. However, Burke never lifted a finger to assist abuse victims when he was bishop of La Crosse WI and archbishop of St. Louis MO. He went right along with the coverup of actively homosexual Midwest bishops and pedophile priests.

      Based on what the Knights of Malta are saying, he isn't even a competent canon lawyer.

  5. It's an interesting perspective but mostly, the Daily Beast is drivel.

    @12:20PM Mega-Pharisees? LOL

  6. Talk about buying into the anti-Tradition talking points. With Burke gone , now the Knights can put their house in order? Give me a break

  7. I don't think that Burke will address liturgical issues of NCW. He already done so, and now he doesn't occupy any curial assignment in that matter (he isn't even member of CDW anymore). But I really hope that he will be free enough to bring justice to victims.

    1. Burke probably couldn't wait to get out of there. Guam is definitely not his thing. He's palazzo-class Rome all the way.

    2. Burke is from Western Wisconsin, He is ill at ease in the Palazzi of Rome. This kind of statement only divert from the real issues.
