Catholic In Name and Catholic In Deed
Our Governor wrote the following in her Facebook Notes about the late Senator Kennedy:
I would like to extend our sympathies to the Kennedy family as we hear word about the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy. He believed in our country and fought passionately for his convictions.
The Knights would be hard-pressed to say anything but may God have mercy on his soul. Nevertheless, we defer to the Governor who may have met the man and come to know more than just his socially destructive pro-abortion policies. Perhaps the Governor perceived the man had changed from the cowardly, detestable man of Chappaquidick. Of course, the Governor expressed in no way communion with the convictions of the late Senator, and her silence is profound.
More profound however are her actions and words in defense of life and family. The Governor, once a Catholic, embraces fundamental Catholic values. What a contrast to the man Kennedy who quite willingly embraced the name and pomp of Catholicism, but utterly rejected its core teaching: Love one another as I have loved you. How will you respond Mr. Kennedy, when He asks you: how did you treat the least of your brethren?
