Fr. (former Representative) Robert Drinan, S.J., who celebrated Pelosi's Mass died tonight of congestive heart failure and pneumonia, Boston TV is reporting.

Senator Ted Kennedy hailed him as "one of the finest people ever to serve in Congress."

This is very strange. I am sure the archbishop can see that this sort of thing is intolerable.

Fr Drinan's death was announced yesterday.

I had forgotten that he was the celebrant at Nancy Pelosi's Mass of Political Triumph. He was also the priest who taught Mario Cuomo and other faithless Democrat politicians how to get around the Church's teachings with that famous phrase, "I'm personally opposed to abortion, but. . . ."

Actually Nancy Pelosi doesn't even pretend that she's personally oppposed, these days. She is filled with hubris.

One never can second-guess Providence, but I have my suspicions. The death of Father Drinan shortly after celebrating the Pelosi Mass reminds me of a blasphemous baron during the time of the Norse invasions of England, who swore a false oath and shortly afterward choked on a communion wafer and died. I misremember his name, but it was a true story.
