We have a new POPE! May God bless him with a great pontificate! Pray that “Francis the 1st” will be able to “Rebuild” God’s Church just like St. Francis of Assisi!

Click Here to listen to the interview I was able to do with Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana while I was with St. Gabriel Radio (then 1580 AM now 820 AM Columbus, Ohio).
He addresses the workings of the conclave that voted for Pope Benedict XVI and the possibility of him being elected Pope at this current conclave around 45:30 into the interview and up to about 55:30. Very worth listening to. Check Him Out!

POPE BURKE???? MAYBE, STAY TUNED!
I don’t get to vote really! But if I did, I would be hoping for Cardinal Raymond L. Burke to be elected by his fellow Cardinals to the Chair of Peter.
As the Bishop of the Diocese of Lacrosse, WI, he hired me and Ed Cotter to come up there and bring the Dead Theologian’s Society to his diocese. At the time I was the President and Co-Founder of DTS. He hired me as a Director of Youth Ministry over a Deanery of 14 parishes and helped Ed secure funding to become a full time National Director of DTS. He was the first bishop to examine DTS in detail and approve it for his diocese. He was (and I believe he still is) a great supporter of the organization. He has a real heart for Catholic Youth Ministry and he is a brilliant man. He was whisked away from us and made an Archbishop of St. Louise, MO, and then shortly after he was made a Cardinal and asked to be in Rome at the Apostolic Signatura. Which is a very high office in the Church and a perfect way to get to know the inner workings of the Vatican. More than all this though, he is a very Holy and Pro-life man. I hope God blesses us with Cardinal Burke as the next Holy Father. We could use his youth, his wisdom, and his heart!
