LifeSite sources confirm imminent removal of Cdl Burke from Signatura

Sources in Rome have confirmed to LifeSiteNews that Cardinal Raymond Burke, the head of the Vatican’s highest court, known as the Apostolic Signatura, is to be removed from his post as head of the Vatican dicastery and given a non-curial assignment as patron of the Order of Malta.

The timing of the move is key since Cardinal Burke is currently on the list to attend October’s Extraordinary Synod on the Family. He is attending in his capacity as head of one of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia, so if he is removed prior to the Synod it could mean he would not be able to attend.

  1. I don't understand what's going on anymore.

  2. Maybe it's not for us to understand.

    Cardinal Burke is a resourceful man, maybe he'll even enjoy being away from the "Leprosy of the Church" and the politics of the Curia.

  3. sounds a bit like the era of Arianism ages ago when faithful bishops were driven from their churches
