Cardinal Burke, who was hospitalized with COVID-19 last year, denies claims that he is a “vaccine denier”.
“The momentous task of prophetically proclaiming the Church’s position falls primarily to the bishops.”
Cardinal Burke explained that he was speaking out because the issue was “a matter of life and death for the unborn and of eternal salvation for the Catholic politicians involved.”
“As we approach Easter, the bishops, as well as millions of practicing Catholics, are not going to have their concerns about Biden allayed by photos of him clinging to his rosary beads.”
Cardinal Burke weighs in, including his thoughts on Joe Biden receiving Holy Communion.
Cardinal Sarah referenced canon 902 of the Code of Canon Law, which refers to “Sacrosanctum concilium” no. 57, and “guarantees priests the possibility of personally celebrating the Eucharist.”
