Cardinal O'Malley on Kennedy funeral

 |  NCR Today

In his blog, Boston's Cardinal Sean O'Malley reflects on the funeral of Sen. Ted Kennedy. He writes:

There are those who objected, in some cases vociferously, to the Church’s providing a Catholic funeral for the Senator. In the strongest terms I disagree with that position.

Saturday, Aug. 29, the day of the funeral, was the 39th anniversary of O'Malley's ordination to the priesthood.
