We’re Catholic, and so…

Despite his proclivities, and to which an amazingly beautiful young lady once admitted in my presence that she’d have gladly indulged, let us keep a man, a Catholic who lived a life none of us can imagine, in our prayers today, the fifty-second anniversary of his assassination.

Not a one of us born in the late 40s or early 50s will ever be able to not recall where, with whom, and how we learned of this tragedy.

I visited his grave in the mid-60s, with my late Dad, also a decorated WW II veteran.

And I can remember, to this day, every step I took and every emotion I felt.

Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine et lux perpetua luceat ei Requiescat in pace Amen +

  1. And, please, my friends – no political comments. In fact, I ask for no comments at all.

    A simple “requiem” and “Ave” will more than do.

    We’re all going to face the same Lord, our God, the Just Judge, that Jack Kennedy did.

    I’ve seen posts on the internet from time to time that Jack did meet with a priest and confessed, very shortly before he was murdered. In all sincerity, I truly hope that such reports were more than “pious legends.”

  2. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
    And let perpetual light shine upon him.
    And may his soul, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  3. D’fhéadfadh go mbeadh Dia trócaire ar a anam/May God have mercy on his soul.

  4. Et tu, Cindy et Timotheus.

  5. Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine et lux perpetua luceat ei Requiescat in pace Amen +
