I truly suspect the book on which Cardinal Burke collaborated, called Remaining in the Truth of Christ, had much to do with the de facto removal of Cardinal Burke from a position of influence at the Vatican. Read what Rorate Caeli says on the matter. As you read it, take note of the book and its publisher in case you want to procure your own copy. I plan to do so.
I'd also recommend a look at what Pat Archibald says in his EWTN piece "The Humiliation of Cardinal Burke (No Spin Zone)". What's in parenthesis is key. So many of these incidents are piling up (I've documented just a few) that one simply can no longer put a "happy face" and play "three monkeys" regarding the proceeds from the Vatican and still maintain intellectual and yes, spiritual honesty.
We need to hold the Holy Father in prayer. However, we must also be honest and not be afraid to articulate what we see. Else, our prayers will be greatly reduced in efficacy.
