Ted Kennedy and Rome
Tom Smith


More Catholic stuff:  canon law of a Catholic funeral for Teddy Kennedy.  (Interesting canon law blog here.) As these guidelines for the San Diego diocese indicate, it's considered inappropriate to have a big eulogy at a Catholic funeral. Let alone three.  In the Irish custom, that's what the wake is for.  But I suppose an archbishop can make an exception if he wants to.  Or maybe not.  Doubtless that is a question for a canon lawyer.

For an interesting controversy over a case where a Catholic funeral was denied, to mafia chieftan John Gotti, see here.
