    There were approximately 12 Bishops and Archbishops present for the funeral today. There were at least 10 of Mother Theresa's Missionaries of Charity present (sisters) at the funeral. Most of the Cathedral had to be cordoned off for priests, nuns, seminarians, and deacons, as well as honored guests (the Governor of Louisiana was present). There was also a large presence by the Frey family -- relatives of the late Archbishop. Priests, Deacons, and seminarians occupied about 1/3 of the space in the pews of the Cathedral. (For such events, priests cannot be seated around the altar because of the large...

    Back on March 3rd, there was a post about a VOTF letter writing campaign and a recommendation to have our own campaign in support of Archbishop Burke prior to his receiving the pallium at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican on June 29. The recommendation received included this:I think we should have our own letter-writing campaign.
