Why we cannot allow THE NATURE OF Ted Kennedy's funeral Mass to die a slow death

I can't say it any better than this: (read here.)

This is so powerful and on point that Bishop Rene Henry Gracida, retired Roman Catholic Bishop of Corpus Christi, Texas recently deferred to this article in lashing out against the scandal caused by the nature of his funeral. (See here.)

Please don't misunderstand me at all. I am not and have never questioned whether Ted Kennedy should have been given a Catholic funeral. He most certainly should have. It's the nature and extent of the spectacle that is causing the scandal and confusion among Catholics and those who pay attention to what the Catholic Church teaches and believes.

Have we forgotten "Lex orandi. Lex credendi. Lex vivendi."?
