Cardinal Mahony has praised the late Teddy Kennedy but has also lamented his having been pro-abortion

Cardinal Mahony has said this to the Catholic News Service:

"...the voiceless, the powerless and the most needy of our citizens have lost a great champion..." in Teddy Kennedy. "His deep and personal commitment to causes affecting the poor and needy among us flowed from his deep Catholic faith, and the life and outreach of Jesus Christ.

"Over the years, however, I was never able to bring him to promote fundamental rights for one important group in our society -- the unborn. But he did struggle with this aspect of his Catholic faith, and I was hopeful that at some point he would see that all of his work for the most needy had to begin with a commitment to every person, born and unborn."

Oh, well. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Good for HizEminence to have pointed out, and to have tried to dissuade Kennedy from his grave error.
