As most of you probably know, Eunice Kennedy Shriver (88) has died. She was the founder and the heart of the Special Olympics program. She took the sorrow of her own sister’s mental retardation and used that inspiration to improve the lives of millions of less fortunate people around the world. She was a great lady who took to heart the admonition of St. Mark, often cited by her parents: To whom much is given, much will be expected.
I deeply believe that she is now joyously reunited with her parents and her many brothers and sisters who passed on before her. Her soul is worthy of our prayers.
