Patty and I have been praying for Raymond Cardinal Burke, who was hospitalized with COVID earlier this month and had to be hooked up to a ventilator. We are Protestants, but we know a hero of the Church when we see one!
We’ve just learned today that Cardinal Burke has been taken off the ventilator and, although he’s still in the hospital, he’s been moved out of intensive care (https://www.wbay.com/2021/08/21/cardinal-burke-off-ventilator-still-hospitalized-with-covid/). This information comes to us via the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe (which he founded) in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
This is very good news indeed. I have to fight off tears of sheer relief.
Please join in prayer for Cardinal Burke’s full recovery; and may the Lord our God raise up more leaders like him to defend us from the wicked and ungodly heathen who would devour us and rule the world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
