Cardinal Burke After the Audience: "I’m Still Alive" 

After his first private audience with Francis since 2016, Cardinal Raymond Burke told "Well, I'm still alive". He declined to discuss the content of the meeting. He wore his usual full-length black coat, black hat and rosary beads in his left hand. The Cardinal's statement was, perhaps unintentionally, a dig at Francis, who once used the same phrase as he left the Gemelli clinic. Last month, Francis told Vatican officials at a regular meeting of the heads of the Roman dicasteries that he had decided to strip Burke of his home and income, a decision that caused worldwide outrage, even among Francis' supporters.
