Listen to the FULL audio of His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke’s Talk on “Saint Raymond of Peñafort: The Inseparable Bond between Doctrine and Discipline.” on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 7:00pm, here.
Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke is Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Prefect Emeritus of the Apostolic Signatura, and a member of several Vatican Congregations. He is widely held to be one of the Church’s foremost authorities on canon law, and is known for his passionate defense of Catholic doctrine.
A native of Wisconsin, he studied for the priesthood in Rome, where he was ordained in 1975 by Pope Paul VI for the Diocese of La Crosse (Wisconsin). After ordination, he served as assistant rector of the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman and taught high school religion in La Crosse. After earning his doctorate in canon law in Rome, he returned to La Crosse to serve in various diocesan posts. In 1989 he was called to Rome to take the position of Defender of the Bond of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura.
In 1995 he was ordained a bishop by Pope St. John Paul II and appointed bishop of La Crosse. In 2004 he was appointed Archbishop of St. Louis, MO, where he served until 2008 when Pope Benedict XVI called him to Rome to serve as Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura (essentially the “Chief Justice” of the Church’s “Supreme Court”). Pope Benedict named him a Cardinal in 2010. In 2014 Pope Francis appointed him to his current position as Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
His Eminence’s academic achievements are many, including: from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome: Doctorate in Canon Law (1984), Diploma in Latin Letters, (1983), Licentiate in Canon Law (1982), Master of Arts in Theology (1975), Bachelor of Sacred Theology (1974); from the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC: Master of Arts in Philosophy (1971), Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy (1970).
