Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the founder of the Special Olympics, died Aug. 11.

May the Lord welcome her into his kingdom.

Quote
Msgr. John Enzler, now the pastor of the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament Parish in Washington, got to know her well when he was pastor of Our Lady of Mercy Parish in the Washington suburb of Potomac, Md., from 1990 to 2004, and Shriver was often a daily communicant at the parish church and at other nearby churches.

He said she played a key behind-the-scenes role in establishing the inclusion program for students with special needs at Our Lady of Mercy School.

The priest said she left a threefold legacy: "Her commitment that all people are children of God, a complete respect for life from conception to natural death, and behind all that a faith that God's always in charge."


Blessed Repose and Eternal Memory.

II Timothy 4:7,8 "... I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing."
