Cardinal Burke: To Transform Society, Be Ready to Die

When Catholics approach Cardinal Raymond L. Burke to express their concerns about evidence of decay in society and the Church, he urges them to “deepen their understanding of the constant teaching and discipline of the Church” and to make their voices heard by Church leaders.

In a May 7 talk addressing the “Rome Life Forum” sponsored by the group Voice of the Family, Cardinal Burke, patron of the Order of Malta, acknowledged concerns about possible confusion in the Church on fundamental dogmatic and moral truths, and said bishops need to “understand the urgent need to announce again with clarity and courage the truths of the faith.” He added that faithful Christians should be prepared for martyrdom out of love for Christ and His Church, and that martyrdom can take one of several different forms.

Cardinal Burke, who served for years as head of the Vatican’s supreme court, said he is concerned about a growing “man-centered and world-centered perspective, especially in the Church” which expresses itself in a “secular understanding of the divine realities which are part and parcel of our daily life.”
