A toast to honor Senator Kennedy.
:toast:

We were able to go to the grandparents' hometown of Dingle, County Kerry, a few years ago.
Three relatives' homes and several pubs had pictures of the Kennedys up. I know there are wakes going on tonight.

"May the light of heaven shine on your grave."

1. In Ireland it is said that St Patrick himself will speak for the Irish
When they stand in the place of judgment. If the good saint is half as eloquent as the Lion of the Senate, Teddy will have no fears, no fears at all.

May he and all of us be judged by the best of ourselves and the worst forgiven. :toast:

2. I like this prayer.


My dearest Lord,
Be thou a bright flame before me,
Be thou a guiding star above me,
Be thou a smooth path below me,
And be a kindly shepherd behind me,
Today and evermore.


It is attributed to St. Columba.
