Contact: Kevin Wandra, 404-788-1276
MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 23, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- WHAT – An international tele-press conference that will feature Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, who will discuss his latest book, HOPE FOR THE WORLD, which addresses his thoughts on controversial topics, such as:
- The indissolubility of marriage
- Radical feminism
- The role of the Catholic Church in the modern world
- The necessity for lay Catholics to be politically active
- The liturgy
- Spiritual renewal
Burke fearlessly provides a therapeutic analysis of the crisis affecting the Catholic Church since Vatican II, and he radiates the perennial hope that is the wellspring of evangelization in HOPE FOR THE WORLD, a thorough and hard-hitting Q-and-A with French journalist Guillaume d'Alançon. His lucid and straightforward answers help with understanding the essential moral and spiritual challenges of today, and the foundational truths of the natural law, which is written on our hearts.
Burke will take questions from media participants.
WHO – Cardinal Raymond Burke is the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the former archbishop of St. Louis. He was made a bishop by Pope John Paul II in 1994, and a cardinal in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI. He was called to Rome in the same year to become Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, before Pope Francis named him chaplain to the Order of Malta in 2014.
Burke has long been one of the most outspoken leaders of the Catholic Church, boldly defending its teachings on controversial topics, such as abortion, same-sex marriage and whether divorced and civilly remarried Catholics should be allowed to receive Communion, among many others.
