New Liturgical Movement: A Sermon by Cardinal Burke: On the Marriage of the Virgin Mary with St Joseph

New Liturgical Movement: A Sermon by Cardinal Burke: On the Marriage of the Virgin Mary with St Joseph







January 23rd is the traditional day of the feast called “The
Espousal of the Virgin Mary with St Joseph.” Although never on the
general Calendar, it was kept by many religious orders, especially those
with a particular devotion to the Virgin Mary, and on many local
calendars. On January 10th, His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke celebrated a Votive Mass
of the Espousal of the Virgin in the Basilica of San Nicola in Carcere
in Rome, as part of a recent conference of the Confraternity of Catholic
Clergy; this Mass was chosen because marriage and the family, and
issues related to them, were the topic of the conference. His Eminence
has very kindly allowed New Liturgical Movement to share the full text
of his sermon with our readers, for which we offer him our gratitude.
(The Scriptural readings of this Mass are Proverbs 8, 22-35, and Matthew
1, 18-21.)
