Prayers for Cardinal Burke

Brother Knights,

As you may have read, Cardinal Burke is quite ill from COVID and pneumonia and is need of prayers. According to several outlets, his condition is deteriorating and is in need of much prayers over the next 48 hours.  


Cardinal Burke has been a steadfast supporter of the Knights and the Traditional Latin Mass over the years.  Please consider including him in your Rosary intentions today and tomorrow and pray for healing, if God wills it.  Also you may consider praying the prayer to Blessed McGivney, who himself suffered and died from pneumonia in the month of August (see below).

Vivat Jesus,

Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network




God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of  the  widow  and  orphan,  you  called  your  priest, Blessed  Michael  McGivney,  to  be  an  apostle  of Christian  family  life  and  to  lead  the  young  to  the generous  service  of  their  neighbor. 

Through  the example of his life and virtue, may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of  charity  and  building  up  his  Body  which  is  the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast.  

We   humbly   ask   that   you   glorify   Blessed Michael McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request).Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Intention: Healing of Cardinal Burke, if God wills it.


Deus, pater noster, protector pauperum atque defensor viduarum et orphanorum: vocasti sacerdotem tuum, beatum Michaelem McGivney, familiari vitae christianae apostolum, iuvenibusque ducem ad adiuvandum proximum. Per exemplum vitae virtutisque eius, Filium tuum propius sequamur, Iesum Christum, ut mandatum caritatis perficiamus ad corroborandum corpus Eius quod est Ecclesia.

Fiat nobis inspirationi famulus tuus ut confidentes tuae caritati pergamus curare indigentes et incuria captos.  Humiliter petimus ut inter caelites connumeretur beatus Michael McGivney presbyter in terra secundum voluntatem tuam. Concede propitius gratiam hanc ______(pete quod desideras)  per Christum Dominum Nostrum. Amen.
