Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


St. Edward of Massachusetts

August 29th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

St. Edward of Massachusetts? A great defender of the faith? Not so much.

I know that if you’re reading this, you know why this man’s political views were antithetical to everything “Catholic” in this world (and the next). However, I would like to ask a question? Do schismatic Catholics still observe something called “social justice,” or do they only care about the poor, not the unborn, the elderly etc . . . ?

From the blog of a certain someone who is now a “priest” at Spiritus Christi:

I like to think that Ted is now part of the heavenly senate, continuing to work toward the rights of all.

I hate to rain on the parade at Spiritus, although, come to think about it, there probably is no parade because gay pride week is over. But, I must still rain nonetheless. Ted Kennedy fought, not for the rights of all, but for the rights of the few and the death of many.

“As for me and my family, we shall follow the Lord.”

The Lord would not stand for the killing of unborn children. Then again, perhaps the pro-choice politicians are blessed among men (and women), for they listen to Jesus’ command very clearly: “Let the little children come unto me.” Through their legislation, they have sent many little children unto Our Lord. Perhaps, though, the Lord didn’t mean to kill them . . .

I don’t know. I’m no Bible scholar. I’ll leave that to our able lay administrators. They seem to know the will of God.

    He apologized for voting a pro-abortion line?

    He wrote a letter to our Pope.My take on his admitting poor decisions and shortcomings in his private and public life didn't mean except abortion. Let our Lord deceide.

    Only the Lord knows his heart. Let us leave it to him, in this, Ted Kennedy's hour of most dire need.

    On EWTN radio, during a discussion about whether or not Ted Kennedy should have a Catholic funeral, one of the presiding priests said it like this: "It has been reported that in his hour of need, there was a priest by his side. I am sure he made a good confession, during which he was most certainly absolved of all his sins. It is not for us as Catholics to sit in judgment of this man, or any, for that matter. May eternal rest be granted unto him or Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him, Amen."

    In his letter to the Pope he did not sound remorseful at all for supporting abortion, but rather boasted about the other things he did which were good…

    Lets just leave the man alone. Our negative remarks among ourselves I am sure is not pleasing to God.

    Can't "Anonymous" posters at least take a fake name to make responding to them easier?

    As for Senator Kennedy, only God knows what was in his heart. BUT, I don't have to sit by while he is canonized in homilies in my church. We CAN be honest about the life he lived without being called un-Christian. What about all the people who are further scandalized by the glorification of his political career and labels like I heard at Mass this weekend "Champion of Social Justice"?

    Anon 12:49 and 2:21 are the same person with the same gushing love for Senator Baby-Murder.
