Cardinal Burke in Gabon, Africa

His Eminence, Cardinal Raymond L. Burke, arriving at Libreville (Gabon, Africa) for the blessing of the facade of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish (an apostolate parish of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest), that will take place on the Feast of Our Lady’s Assumption this Saturday, August 15, 2015. The facade was recently installed with azulejos stones, glazed colored tiles with a depiction of the Nativity of Christ the Infant King, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and the three patrons of the Institute (St. Francis de Sales, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Benedict).


The man next to the cardinal is Ali Bongo Ondimba, the president of Gabon and the first lady.


  1. His Emminence looks good in white. Hopefully someday we will see him wear it more regularly...

  2. Totally reasonable attire for a tropical location.

  3. This is a sad and silly reenactor of former effete sanctuary rituals.
