The following comes from a July 19 release sent by Christian Newswire.

In a thorough and hard-hitting discussion, Cardinal Raymond Burke frankly offers his thoughts and insights on the pressing issues of our time — the role of the Catholic Church in the modern world, the liturgy, spiritual renewal, marriage, family, respect for human life, radical feminism, poverty and more — in his new book, Hope for the World: To Unite All Things in Christ.

Burke’s deep love for Christ and the Catholic Church is evident as he recounts his own upbringing in a devout Catholic family, his early priestly years and his service as a bishop in the United States and Rome. In Hope for the World, Burke approaches every topic from the perspective of deep faith and sound reasoning, without polemics, and treats difficult subjects with clarity and directness. He provides lucid and straightforward answers to the essential moral and spiritual challenges of today.

“Cardinal Burke reveals his own story, and along the way, he candidly answers challenging questions with clarity and precision,” Raymond Arroyo, EWTN news anchor of “The World Over,” says of Hope for the World. “Throughout he is as inspiring as he is fearless.”

Burke is widely considered a great canonist, with long pastoral experience. He was made a bishop by Pope John Paul II in 1994, and a cardinal in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI. He was called to Rome in the same year to become Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura. In 2014, Pope Francis named him chaplain to the Order of Malta.

    Card. Burke has a rough road ahead of him, trying to make sense of the post-Vatican II Church for Catholics.

      Bishop Athanasius Schneider: We Are In The Fourth Great Crisis Of The Church!

      Bishop Schneider is best known for arguing that Holy Communion should be received on the tongue while kneeling, which he insists is the more efficient way to foster respect for the Sacrament and to prevent abuse of the Sacred Hosts. The 53-year-old bishop has called also for clarification (a new Syllabus of Errors), aimed at the clergy, to put a stop to liturgical and doctrinal freewheeling on a range of issues in the “spirit of Vatican II”.

  3. I can’t help but think that Cardinal Burke can get the discussion going that is needed in the Church today, as we move through a sea change in popular culture and, for some, confusion on Church direction. He is known for being very orthodox in his approach.

    This sounds like the answer to many of my prayers. Thanks to Jesus and Mary and thanks to Cardinal Burke. Love, peace and gratitude to Them and him and to CCD for passing this word along.
