Did you hear about how non-Catholic, apparently non-Christian took Communion at Tim Russert’s funeral?
When Catholics objected, Quinn was so presumptuous as to defend what she did. Read this for the uproar her gesture rightly caused.
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.
