Cardinal Burke Questions the Authority of Pope Francis to Eliminate the Traditional Latin Mass

Daniel Ibanez/CNACardinal Raymond Burke speaks during the presentation of the new book “Christvs Vincit,” by Bishop Athanasius Schneider, in Rome on Oct. 14, 2019.

Cardinal Burke’s lengthy statement, published on his personal website, strongly defends the validity of what Pope Benedict XVI called the “extraordinary form” of the Roman Rite, and which he calls the “Usus Antiquior” [UA], or “more ancient usage.”
