Cardinal Burke to deliver keynote address at Vatican conference for Gospel of life

Catholic World News - May 15, 2013

As part of the Year of Faith, the Vatican is hosting a “Day Celebrating the Evangelium Vitae [Gospel of life]” on June 15 and 16. The day’s events, which include a pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Peter, Eucharistic adoration and the Sacrament of Penance, and a prayer vigil, will culminate with a Mass celebrated by Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square.

Two American prelates will play key roles in the day’s events. Cardinal Raymond Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, will deliver the keynote address at a Vatican conference devoted to “The Gospel of Life and the New Evangelization,” and Archbishop Joseph Augustine Di Noia, vice president of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, will lead a holy hour for life.
