Abp. Burke's Warning Shot

The Archbishop of St. Louis excommunicated three women--two of whom live in his Diocese--for their attempted "ordination" and other Canonical crimes.

He made the notification public, too, to prevent scandal.

The Archbishop of St. Louis provides an excellent example!

Excellent commentary available here from Ed Peters, a Canon lawyer.

Hey Dad. Great post.
Archbishop Burke is a great man and a holy man. He is the patron of the Our Lady of Guadalupe shrine of 100 plus acres in LaCrosse to be officially opened this July. He went from LaCrosse to St Louis at about the same time that His Excellency the most Reverend Timothy Dolan came from St Louis to Milwaukee.
I'm honored to know both of these men.
