Cardinal Burke and Covid - especially for our Wisconsin Pilgrims

This is especially for all those pilgrims who joined us for our July 2021 “Shrines of Wisconsin” pilgrimage in which we all enjoyed the company of Cardinal Burke for Mass, dinner and his talk to our group.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11
PRAYERS FOR CARDINAL BURKE  Cardinal Raymond Burke tweeted out last night: “Praised be Jesus Christ! I wish to inform you that I have recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Thanks be to God, I am resting comfortably and receiving excellent medical care. Please pray for me as I begin my recovery. Let us trust in Divine Providence. God bless you.” Join us in praying a Hail Mary now for Cardinal Burke and everyone who is sick.  LINK
