Matt Malone on TV on Sen. Kennedy

 Our own Matt Malone, SJ, who will soon (and sadly for us) be departing the magazine for theology studies in preparation for ordination, appears on NET, the Brooklyn diocese's new web channel, speaking about Sen. Kennedy.  Matt is humble about his political acumen and background: he worked for a U.S. Congressman from Massachusetts and ran a political thinktank in Boston.  He's a talented writer with a huge love of politics.  Listen what he has to say about the death of Ted Kennedy; I'd wager it's about the best TV commentary you will get in the coming days.

May God bless Mr. Malone as he continues his journey to his priesthood- Fr. Malone has a nice ring to it!  I have a friend who spent many years as a congressional aide, but now is spending the rest of her days as a monastic nun.  They would probably agree that as thrilling as their respective times in politics were, Christ is leading them on an even more thrilling journey.

And the light overcomes the darkness.  May he (Senator Kennedy) R.I.P.  For me, watching the news and hearing Senator Kennedy's priest speaking on The News Hour of Senator Kennedy's private ''Voluteer work'',  and remembering as always the familiy's public giving of three sons through war and assination (as with horror I watch yet again ''T.V. wars''  with tortue thrown in also), the light of CHrist  whom Senator Kennedy knew, overcomes all the darkness.  What a great Catholic story.  HOPE-''The memory of the future''.  As a physician I always hope for a public option in health care.  Seeing the lines of people viewing his body, hearing the tributes-his leadership in social justice over 47 years. I am celebrating a wonderful Catholic story among our polis here in the USA. There are no shadows for Senator Kennedy now.  No more tears. Only celebration of a beloved human life.
