Washington, D.C.-Pax Christi USA mourns the death of Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy, who succumbed to brain cancer on Tuesday night. Senator Kennedy, who was diagnosed in May 2008, was seen as a champion of many issues important to Catholics concerned with social justice.
"Despite his own status as a person of privilege and power, Senator Kennedy's legacy will be his work on behalf of the marginalized, the impoverished, and the most vulnerable," stated Dave Robinson, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA. "He had a deep understanding of and appreciation for Catholic social teaching and its focus on the common good."
