Cardinal Burke was transferred Saturday from his position as head of the Holy See’s supreme court to a largely ceremonial post.

With the permission of current St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson, Vatican Cardinal Raymond Burke will ordain four men into the sacred priesthood of the Institute of Christ the King Sovreign at St. Francis de Sales Oratory on Gravois in South St. Louis.
“Maybe a Pope who is a little bit younger, I think would be a great fit,” St. Louisan John Walter said.
