Hopeful news about American Cardinal Raymond Burke: The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which the cardinal founded in his native La Crosse, Wisconsin, has reported the following on August 21:

The Cardinal’s family is pleased to announce that His Eminence has come off the ventilator and will leave the ICU today to return to his hospital room. His sister spoke with him on the phone this morning, and His Eminence expressed his deep gratitude for the many prayers offered on his behalf. His family asks that we continue those prayers for his full and speedy recovery, and they are grateful to God for the exceptional medical care the Cardinal has received from the dedicated doctors and nurses who continue to assist him.

The cardinal was admitted to the hospital on August 14 some days after testing positive for Covid.
