Whispers About St. Louis



Rocco Palmo, no traditionalist himself, has a short entry in his Whispers in the Loggia (known as an "insiders" blog about all things Ecclesiastical) about our fair city in light of the recent ICRSP ordinations:




"...St Louis sealed its claim to the distinction of the nation’s (traditionalist) capital on Friday as Archbishop Raymond Burke ordained two new priests from a Tridentine-exclusive society in the city’s cathedral-basilica. The Pontifical High Mass featuring the ordinations was said to be the first of its kind celebrated in a US cathedral in over four decades."



The events of the past several days certainly have been a great success by any measure. It is nice to see the word getting out.

I am absolutely in love with the Catholic Church in the Midwest, because of the Archbishop Burke's faithfulness to holiness. What is even more amazing, I was at the March 7th Mass!!! There weren't many people then, but it grew enormously on June 15th! I will be there again when the Church makes history!

This is truly fitting and wonderful--since, in the mid-20th century, St. Louis was arguably an important center of *liberalism* due to the Jesuit seminary at Florissant! I'm glad to see it now at the forefront of traditionalism.

You are blessed, indeed! We don't even have the ICRSS in Canada. Sometimes I think I live in the wrong country...
