Editor's Note: I reiterate The Remnant's urgent call for prayer for Raymond Cardinal Burke who at this moment is fighting for his life in hospital and on a ventilator. We must storm heaven for prayers for this holy and courageous shepherd.
I'm not sure many of us fully realize how dire our situation becomes if, for whatever reason, God calls His good and faithful servant home during this most horrific moment in history. His Eminence richly deserves such heavenly reward, of course, but his passing would be felt by the Church Militant here below as another piece of the Divine Chastisement our sinful world richly deserves.
Please pray for Cardinal Burke, and especially seek the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of Cardinal Burke's magnificent shrine in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Long before the Pachamama scandal had landed, Cardinal Burke seemed to be anticipating the urgent need the world would soon realize to "flee to the protection" of Mary, help of Christians, the great Queen of Heaven who had once before reclaimed this land from the serpent and who will do so again. Let us do as Archbishop Vigano suggests, and entrust Cardinal Burke to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I add my voice to Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's urgent plea for prayers for Cardinal Burke, and I ask all our readers to share this post at this desperate hour.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Empress of the Americas, Pray for Cardinal Burke now and at the hour of his death. MJM
A Message from Archbishop Vigano
In these hours of great concern for the health of our dear Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, I invite all of the faithful to pray for him, entrusting His Eminence to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I also exhort the doctors who are caring for His Eminence to not hesitate to seriously consider using the existing treatments whose effectiveness have been demonstrated.
+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop

What if I were to tell you that a key Council Father at Vatican II was also an honored guest speaker early on at the World Economic Forum in Davos? What if I were to also tell you that, in addition to being close to Klaus Schwab 40 years ago, this archbishop also held a secret meeting in the middle of the night under the streets of Rome to plot the downfall of the traditional Catholic Church at the close of Vatican II? Wild conspiracy theory? A plot from a Malachi Martin novel?
I encourage Remnant readers to storm heaven with prayers for Cardinal Burke‘s full recovery. I would especially suggest praying the rosary for his intention, but also with a request that our Lady of Guadalupe intercede on behalf of his Eminence and that God restore him to health. Cardinal Burke is a good and holy shepherd. Please, God, be with him now in his hour of great need.
Cardinal Burke has been admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 and is being assisted by a ventilator. Doctors are encouraged by his progress. H.E. faithfully prayed the Rosary for those suffering from the virus. On this Vigil of the Assumption, let us now pray the Rosary for him.— Cardinal Burke (@cardinalrlburke) August 15, 2021
They say that New York may at some point soon be underwater due to climate change. Personally, I think if it ever happens, it’s more likely divine chastisement.
To think that this apostate Catholic suffered no political damage after legalizing infanticide, and then running Covid patients through nursing homes—thereby taking out who knows how many thousands of elderly people during Covid last year—just before making millions of dollars off a book lionizing himself for his handling of the pandemic.

Michael Matt has a very important question for you: If you could be shown that a particular COVID vaccine was perfectly safe and did not use aborted fetal tissue, would you be in favor of the government making it mandatory?
In this episode of the Editor’s Desk, Michael J. Matt discusses strategy with a particular emphasis on building the largest possible coalition of resistance. He points out that, contrary to what CNN claims, some of the strongest opposition to vaccination passports comes from those who are not actually anti-vax– e.g., Gov. Ron DeSantis, Senator Rand Paul, Tucker Carlson—but who nevertheless recognize this as an unprecedented attack on U.S. sovereignty.
Given the unsettling nature of Joe Biden’s August 3rd press conference on forced vaccinations, we are happy to partner with LifeSiteNews and their important online conference which live-streams today.
The conference features some of the leading medical experts in the nation on the question of these emergency use vaccines. As Big Tech will tolerate neither dissent nor discussion on this issue, I am pleased to lend The Remnant's support to the LifeSite conference and we encourage our readers to watch and spread the word.

Here comes Covid again and, along with it, here comes Health Passports. Are you ready for the next lockdown?
Plus, civil war in the Catholic Church. In this episode of The Editor’s Desk, Michael J. Matt discusses how faithful Catholics all across the spectrum are either perplexed or downright outraged by the attempted suppression of the Catholic Mass on the part of Pope Francis.
An article published today in America Magazine, I love Latin Mass and Pope Francis. Please don’t let a few (very loud) traditionalists ruin it for the rest of us, by Jonathan Culbreath, offers tacit confirmation of the injustice and lack of mercy painfully evident in Pope Francis's over-the-top crackdown on the Tridentine Mass.
I actually agree with its young author, that for Francis to punish an entire cross section of faithful Catholics over the obnoxious words of a tiny minority of online loudmouths is a gross miscarriage of justice.
New from RTV... Nation's top country song panned as "controversial" and "extremist" for decrying flag burning.
As Team Biden continues to dismantle America -- corrupting her schools, politics and military -- the nation is left to wonder: Just who are the real haters in America today?
A new song by Aaron Lewis has rocketed to the Number One spot on the Billboard chart after debuting within the top 15 of the Hot 100 on July 2, 2021.
CatholicWorldReport | Fr. Stravinskas: We all woke up on Friday, July 16, to yet another example of Papa Bergoglio’s heavy-handedness with the promulgation of his latest motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes, reversing the legislation of his predecessors, St. John Paul II (1984 and 1988) and Benedict XVI (2007), on the use of the Missal of Pope St. Pius V, dubbed the “extraordinary form” of the Roman Rite by Benedict.
