Abp. Burke Out of St Louis, to Rome

The announcement this morning:

Today, at noon in Rome (5 a.m. CDT), it was announced that His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, has named me prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, effective immediately. With the announcement, I ceased to be the Archbishop of St. Louis

That makes Abp. Burke the top guy on Canon-law affairs in Rome, and makes St. Louis safe for aborto-Democrats (for the time being.)

Doesn't say much for Rome.

Wow. Sometimes the stuff you write is just...ridiculous, OS.

Burke is a good, faithful Catholic. Wait - in your book that's a negative, isn't it?

OS, I expect a little better from you.
