Let Us Pray for Senator Kennedy

Following the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy last week, Liturgical Training Publications, an agency of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, sent suggested Prayers of the Faithful for August 30.

This updated prayers of the faithful include: "For those who have given their lives to service to their country, promoting values of peace, justice, equality, and liberty; especially, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, that he may find his eternal reward in the arms of God...We pray."

To pray for Senator Kennedy as one who promoted peace, justice, equality, and liberty, ignoring the 49 million+ babies killed through legalized abortion, would be simply to pray a lie at Mass. Senator Kennedy’s pro-abortion voting record is well known. He voted against the ban partial birth abortion. He voted against the ban on human cloning. He voted to expand embryonic stem-cell research. The list could be extended. He has a 100% rating from the National Abortion Rights Action League. (cfr California Catholic Daily)

Pray for Ted Kennedy, but not for one who promoted values of peace, justice, equality, and liberty!

Ted Kennedy was a great man and we certainly should all pray for him. Thanks for posting this and trying to help spread the word.

God Bless,
