On Thursday, 11 December 2014, LifeSiteNews Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen, had the privilege of meeting with Cardinal Raymond Burke in Wisconsin, where he presented the Cardinal with a beautifully-bound book, with the signatures of nearly 30,000 people who wished to thank him for his Vatican Service, and who pledged to Pray for him.

LifeSiteNews presented Cardinal Raymond Burke with a handsomely-bound book, signed by over 29,000 people who had expressed their thanks for the Cardinal’s Vatican Service, and pledged to Pray for him and to follow his example.

The Cardinal expressed his “deepest gratitude” for the show of “support and, most of all, for your Prayers.”

An Online Petition of Support for Cardinal Burke, one of the most unequivocal Pro-Life and Pro-Family voices in The Catholic Church, was launched in November by LifeSiteNews after the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had removed him from his position as the Prefect of the Vatican’s Apostolic Signatura. Burke was demoted to the position of Patron of The Sovereign Military Order of Malta, a largely ceremonial role.

“We must all now, going forward, remain united in Our Lord Jesus, defending The Truth of our Faith, especially with regard to Marriage and The Family,” said Cardinal Burke, after being presented the Pledges by LifeSiteNews Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen. The exchange took place at The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in La Crosse, Wisconsin, United States of America.

“We can be confident, even though things can seem rather dark to us, that if we co-operate with God’s Grace, and are true defenders of The Faith, and promoters of The Truth about Marriage and The Family, that Our Lord will not be lacking in His Grace for us.”

“Of course, the victory is always His, in the end. Let’s remain steadfast, and not give way to discouragement,” the Cardinal said.
