The Passing Of William F Buckley Jr-Requiscant In Pacem

He passed away in his Study @ age 82, earlier today, in CT:
At Age 29, in 1955, he founded The National Review Magazine, which had a Classical Liberal(What We Call Conservative)Tone and never sounded jingoistic, but rather, intellectual in the Magazine's Approach:

He wrote "God And Man At Yale" and other works;

I never forgot a certain discussion on The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass in the Discussion of whether it belonged in Latin or in The Native Tongue;

When I was younger, when the subject was broached by William Buckley, on his Television Show, "Firing Line", he favored it in Latin, as we did have English Translation on the side;

I think now, he foresaw the various Liturgical Abuses with Mass in The Vulgar Tongue. I may not have agreed with his assesment at the Age of 12, but with experience over the years with "Michael Row The Boat Ashore", a "Hymn" more-attuned to a Greenwich Village Coffee House than at Mass & even worse Liturgical "Music", much of it laced with Self-Praise instead of Praising & Pleading with The Almighty Father, and having returned to The Traditional Latin Mass, Mr Buckley had a MOST-VALID Point(Match Point, Mr Buckley);

It was that One Memorable TV Program, which brought back memories, as Mr Buckley was a Man Of Faith, Indeed;

Sorry, Michael. As far as I'm concerned, the world is better off without the miserable McCarthyite. Good riddance, and if he made it to heaven then I hope I go to hell.

Actually, Lisa, as Christians we're charged to pray for The Living & Dead & In Heaven, NEITHER is Liberal NOR Conservative.

It also is no place I want to be sharing with an evil spirit like Buckley.
