Ave Maria!
In his homily, Cardinal Burke focused on the need for beauty and splendor in the sacred liturgy, echoing what His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI wrote in the letter accompanying his Moto Proprio "Summorum Pontificum:" "It is not appropriate to speak of these two versions of the Roman Missal as if they were 'two Rites'.  Rather, it is a matter of a twofold use of one and the same rite." And "What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful.  It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church's faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place..."

Ave Maria!

    Do you know where I might find the text of this Homily in English?

    Hi – I could not read the text of the sermon due to the layout of the webpage which cut it off. Can you provide the text of Cardinal Burke’s sermon in another format (not sure if everyone has this problem with the webpage) Thanks so much and if is too much trouble to do no problem at all. God bless you all and Happy & Blessed 2011!

    Ave Maria.

    We’ve requested the text in order to get it translated into English, but there has been no response from our friars in Italy yet.
