“In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. So be it. My dear brothers and sisters, today we celebrate the solemnity of Pentecost, calling to mind the visible descent of the Holy Spirit on the apostles, when the Holy Spirit filled the faithful hearts with his Divine presence and imbued their souls with his seven gifts and especially the gift of divine love.

Conference of Catholic Clergy: Cardinal Raymond Burke’s homily to Priests – St Peter’s Basilica January 9 2015 During his homily at a Mass for the priests in St. Peter’s Basilica on Jan. 9, Cardinal Raymond Burke encouraged them not to give up.  Cardinal Burke said the “frighteningly troubled times in which we live surely make us more conscious of the great and seemingly overwhelming struggle” that priests today are facing. “Confusion and error about the most fundamental truths of the moral law lead our culture into a greater and evermore self-destructive corruption,” the American cardinal said. Cardinal Burke added, “The...
