It is official: at age 66, His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke has been removed as Prefect of the Signatura and given a ceremonial assignment usually reserved for retired Cardinals. The most humble of humble popes has named Cardinal Burke as Patron of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta.
This attempt at humiliating His Eminence will only serve to show forth his humility. Instead of denigrating him, it denigrates the authority wielding the knife.
If you want hypocrisy over and above this, just read the comments by the compassionate, loving liberals at NCR.
The cross was a symbol of infamy-- until Our Dear Lord was nailed to it, making it the throne of His Glory. I am not seeking for hyperbole here when I say that the position of Patron of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta will be elevated by the man who fills the role. In fact, when--When-- the restoration occurs, I say that this position should be handed down as a particularly coveted honor.
God will arise, and His enemies will be scattered.
God bless Cardinal Burke. And He will.
