Cd. Burke said "Follow... the Example of St. Athanasius: Please, follow your own Advice

Cardinal Raymond Burke told the National Catholic Register:

"[F]ollow... the example of St. Athanasius."
(National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Burke's 10 Ways to Overcome Crisis of Confusion, Division in the Church," August 8, 2017)

Please, Cardinal Burke follow your own advice.

St. Athanasius was excommunicated by the pope, in hiding for his life and called a "schismatic" "rebel" by all the bishops of the time except a handful of traditional bishops, but he despite this with every fiber of his body and soul fought for the traditional faith of the Fathers of the Church.

You know, Cardinal Burke, the traditional teaching of the Doctors of the Church and the great theologians summed up by St. Francis de Sales:

"The Pope... when he is explicitly a heretic... the Church must either deprive him or as some say declare him deprived of his Apostlic See."

Please, Cardinal Burke follow your own advice:

"[F]ollow... the example of St. Athanasius."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and that Cardinal Burke receive the grace to follow the example of St. Athanasius.

Well, he almost has followed that example and I have no doubt but that the current powers in the Vatican would love to excommunicate him. He is trying to avoid that as his is almost a lone voice crying out (along with a handful of others, also marginalized). It may come to excommunication unless the Vatican can pull a "Pell" on him.
