Remembering JFK

Fr. Robert Imbelli has a fine post remembering the day John Fitzgerald Kennedy was shot at L'Osservatore Romano.

And, I wish to remind readers in the D.C. area that tonight, there will be a Choral Mass of Remembrance at the Cathedral of St. Matthew, the Apostle, where Kennedy's funeral was held. Fr. J. Bryan Hehir will be the homilist. The Mass begins at 5:30 p.m. but the music begins at 5:10 p.m.
