Archbishop Raymond Burke



J.C Corcoran Here commented on Fox News in St. Louis, Mo. No doubt this was occasioned by the recent excommunication announcement of the two women who attempted to be ordained to the Catholic Priesthood by a female who thinks she is a Catholic bishop, in the diocese of His Reverence Archbishop Raymond Burke. The excommunication of the women was automatic. The Archbishop had warned the women they would incur excommunication but they did not care and went forward anyway. The announcement to the diocese was in order to inform the faithful that this was not acceptable and the penalty involved.

I wrote the station and am posting my email below because I think you will be encouraged by the information about the movement afoot in the youth of the Catholic Church, even in extremely liberal California.

Dear Editor or Whom it may concern,

No, doubt Mr. Corcoran thrilled the hearts of those who disagree or hate the Catholic Church. However, he has unwittingly made of fool of himself because he does not really know the facts or refuses to believe them. Surrounded and exposed to modern media propaganda regarding the Catholic Church he is convinced he does know and understand the facts. But that very media he trusts, as well as, perhaps, his parish church, has filtered information to him in such a way that he has discredited himself while thinking that he is fully informed, when he is not fully informed. Let me give you a glimpse of what is really going on in the Catholic Church.

I take the youth from our Catholic Church to a summer conference for youth that teaches in union with all that the Catholic Faith teaches. During exposition of the Blessed Sacrament I saw 5000 teens drop to their knees in adoration, without being told to do so.


The next day, the diocesan Vocations Director and Bishop asked for all the young men to stand up who had ever even considered the priesthood. They stood up. I saw several stand around me. Then they asked for them to come down to the stage area. Down they went.
THERE WAS NO EMOTIONAL APPEAL. The request was as simple as I have stated.

As I watched the aisle near me, to my surprise, they kept coming and coming. I then looked around the rest of the stadium. Every aisle was filled with young men! …hundreds of them! I could not believe my eyes! As soon as everyone began to realize the enormity of the response, the whole stadium full of teens jumped to their feet and clapped and cheered as loudly and longer than any cheer for a touchdown! The area in front of the stage was packed with these young men. The bishop blessed and prayed for them.

It moved me to tears. The vocations crisis is over I thought to myself. Now, I know perfectly well that all of those young men will not end up entering the priesthood. But, hundreds are taking their faith seriously and considering it. And they were confirmed and wildly applauded by… THEIR PEERS!!!

This scene was repeated for the girls who were open to the religious life…exactly… aisles filled and streaming down to the stage, standing ovation, and prolonged cheering.

And this occurred in just one conference in Southern California, of all places. These conferences are put on all summer all over the country. Can you imagine? If this is the response of faithful teens in Southern California, where the Catholic Faith has been systematically disfigured by many in authority, what is going on in more faithful dioceses all over the world???!!!

In fact, one of the girls at this event is now 19. She graduated from college at 18 and is planning to enter the convent of the Dominican Sisters of Nashville, TN January 1, 2008!

And, there are 5 boys in my parish seriously considering the priesthood. Yes, this is in So. California. The youth are embracing the ancient, orthodox truths and liturgy of the Catholic Church and rebelling against the silly, watered down, new age, liberal, rebellions against the Pope.

May God open your hearts to the Truth
