Cardinal Burke, unflinching, celebrates Tridentine Mass in Vienna

Posted on Updated on

Cardinal Burke, recently demoted by Pope Francis as the head of the Apostolic Signatura (equivalent to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the secular world), was unflinching as he recently celebrated a Pontifical High Mass in the Tridentine Rite under the aegis of Una Voce, with full pomp and circumstance, showing the glories that are offered to God in a dignified manner He wishes, when performed in the Roman Rite.

This occurred because of Burke’s defense of traditional teaching by the Church on marriage and reception of communion by divorced people. He mentioned in a separate interview that the Church seems to be drifting “rudderless”, an allusion to the liberal and novel tendencies of the Holy Father.

This occurred in Vienna, Austria at Karlskirsch, named after St Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians and a great influence at the Council of Trent.


ESH is well aware the various Byzantine and Eastern Rites are equally profound, majestic and praiseworthy when offered with the same reverence.

Una Voce Austria has released photographs of Cardinal Burke’s recent Pontifical High Mass in Vienna, as well as of the Requiem at which he assisted from the throne. has posted a video of the former (embedded above).
