Cardinal Burke on the death of Cardinal Egan

Cardinal Raymond Burke, in an email message to the Register, underscored Cardinal Egan’s service to the Church as a gifted canon lawyer.

“During most of my years of service as prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, Cardinal Egan was a member or judge of the signatura. Prior to his appointment as auxiliary bishop of New York, he had served as a judge of the Roman Rota for more than a decade,” said Cardinal Burke.

“I remain always grateful for his teaching of canon law and for his years of service to the Holy See, especially regarding matters of Church discipline.”

“It is most comforting to know that the cardinal was able to receive the full ministrations of the Church at the time of his unexpected death. May he rest in peace,” said the cardinal.
