You gotta be kidding me.
But to his credit, as they began to recess out he did not go to shake Obama's hand, he went to the family instead.
I didn't see the whole thing, I'll try to catch it later on repeat. But I have reports that the Prayer of the Faithful was nothing more than a slew of liberal campaign slogans. But what did we expect? Something remotely Catholic coming out of Boston?
What I do know is that there were at least three eulogies given. The GIRM is specific on this:
382. At the Funeral Mass there should, as a rule, be a short homily, but never a eulogy of any kind.
But the Archdiocese of Boston has their own rules:
18. Following the prayer after Communion and before the Final Commendation, only one speaker, a member or a friend of the family, may speak for not more than five minutes in remembrance of the deceased.
It doesn't appear that the Archdiocese is able to follow their own policies. I heard three speakers and they spoke for around 45 minutes.
I've been told the camera's went to Placido Domingo during Communion. I will try to find out which baby killer was given the Eucharist.
