Coverage of Archbishop Burke's Farewell Mass

The above picture was taken by David Carson of the Post-Dispatch, and is included here to show just how packed was the farewell Mass for Archbishop Burke. That's fifteen hundred people.
A fitting sendoff for a worthy shepherd.

The post also has a slideshow with audio from the Mass here.

I was a little bummed that we would not be able to attend (we had family in town), I'm glad to see that it was beyond PACKED! That is SO awesome!

God bless Archbishop Burke and all that he has done for St. Louis and the Catholic Church! We pray for another Archbishop to continue his work.

Archbishop, farewell and Godspeed. Thanks for all you have done for Holy Mother Church in the Show-Me State and the United States, as well.
