Recall that his punishment resulted from Bobby Kennedy taking offence, running to his Dad Joe who get got the Kennedy house bishop, Cardinal Cushing to organise measures in Rome.
Cushing got complaints from various people including a mother (1961) and a priest (Fr Chabot 1967) about Paul Shanley's crimes against young boys throughout the sixties. His response at the end of the sixties was to make Shanley's apostolate to street youth permanent. Error and moral depravity are so often the closest things. I recall someone claiming that the perverted, tormented Shanley made claims against Cushing.
Wonder what offended RFK at the St. Benedict’s Center?
Read that JFK stopped by the St. Benedict’s Center in Boston and was well received.
Before he left, Father Feeney even mentioned that charismatic Irishman had the potential to become a U.S. president.
On the contrary, RFK was said to have visited and was apparently miffed by the SBC’s staunch Catholic militancy. He walked out saying he knew more Protestants that would go to Heaven before the SBC crowd would.
If the Jєωs hadn’t shot RFK,I think he would have won the 1968 election, but would have been a liberal president.
In contrast, JFK had the Catholic graces of wisdom, to seek the Confessional 4 hours before the Jєωs αssαssιnαtҽd him.
Who’s in Heaven now and who is not? JFK’s & RFK’s murderers surely didn’t make it.
