Cdl. Burke to ordain Institute priests in St Louis August 5th

I am very excited to publish this great news, fresh from the website of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Seven years after the historic ordinations at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, Cardinal Raymond Burke will once again ordain new priests for the Institute here in St. Louis. I will post a more in-depth piece tonight or Saturday night, but wanted to get the news out right away. From the website:

With heartfelt gratitude to Divine Providence, it is our joy to announce the upcoming priestly ordinations which will take place this summer in the United States. With the gracious permission of His Grace, the Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, several American deacons will be ordained to the holy priesthood at St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis, Missouri, on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, Feast of Our Lady of the Snows. The Sacrament of Holy Orders will be conferred by His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, during the solemn Pontifical Mass which will be offered on this feast in honor of Mary Immaculate, principal patroness of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.

There is a strong devotion in the area to Our Lady of the Snows.  The national shrine to Our Lady of the Snows is located nearby in Belleville, IL. 



  1. On a related subject, please note that one of your (and mine) other favorite bishops, HE Morlino of Madison, ordained six men to the diaconate at Our Lady of Guadalupe seminary (FSSP) in Nebraska on March 15. God be praised!
