Did you hear about how non-Catholic, apparently non-Christian took Communion at Tim Russert’s funeral?
Last Wednesday at Tim’s funeral mass at [Holy]Trinity Church in Georgetown (Jack Kennedy’s church), communion was offered. I had only taken communion once in my life, at an evangelical church. It was soon after I had started “On Faith” and I wanted to see what it was like. Oddly I had a slightly nauseated sensation after I took it, knowing that in some way it represented the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Last Wednesday I was determined to take it for Tim, transubstantiation notwithstanding. I’m so glad I did. It made me feel closer to him.
When Catholics objected, Quinn was so presumptuous as to defend what she did. Read this for the uproar her gesture rightly caused.
