The Large Table

Catholic News Service is reporting some of the text from Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's homily today at the funeral Mass of NBC's Tim Russert. As always, it sounds like the cardinal hit just the right notes.

His conclusion:

"All that remains is to say thank you to the good and gracious God who gave us Tim Russert for 58 years and to pray that the beloved anchor of 'Meet the Press' is now sitting at the large table of the Lord to begin a conversation which will last forever."

Senators McCain and Obama sat next to each other at the funeral. CNN's Wolf Blitzer reports that, from his vantage point, they seemed to have a good conversation prior to the start of the liturgy.

I like that.
