More Scandal For the Church In America

As we all know, Senator Kennedy has "...shuffled off this mortal coil" and has met his maker.

Hopefully we all prayed for his soul, and the souls of the millions of children he has helped to murder, and also for the soul of Mary Jo Kopechne. May God have more mercy on Ted's soul than Ted had for Miss Kopechne while she drowned in that car.

It would seem Ted will have a Funeral Mass this Saturday at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica. No word yet on which of our Bishops will scandalize the Church and say his funeral Mass.

UPDATE 12:40pm: There is a private "family Mass" being said right now for the Kennedy's. Why do these people feign loyalty to the Catholic Church? What's the point?

The Funeral Mass will be from 10:30 - 12:30 Saturday. I called up there to the Basilica today, and admittance is by "...private invitation by the Kennedy's." The woman I talked to said they do not know who is going to say the Mass yet.

UPDATE 2:05pm: Thanks to the Catholic Caveman for posting this:

Can. 1184

§1. Unless they gave some signs of repentance before death, the following must be deprived of ecclesiastical funerals:

1/ notorious apostates, heretics, and schismatics;
2/ those who chose the cremation of their bodies for reasons contrary to Christian faith;
3/ other manifest sinners who cannot be granted ecclesiastical funerals without public scandal of the faithful.

§2. If any doubt occurs, the local ordinary is to be consulted, and his judgment must be followed.

This is terrible. Did I miss something? She was probably rapped and then left to drown and die. The Kennedys are notorious for coming such crimes. Hate to say it, but it’s true.
