"Every year since his sister Terri Schiavo died, Bobby Schindler and his family have held a small Catholic Mass at a parish church near their St. Petersburg-area home."

I wonder if the Schindlers ever joined a parish? I know they did not have one in 2000 and after wards when they brought up the religious issue they STILL had none.

"The main celebrant of Tuesday’s Mass is the Rev. Frank Pavone, head of an $11 million New York nonprofit called Priests for Life that bills itself as “the largest Catholic organization exclusively dedicated to fighting abortion and euthanasia.”"

Figures. The spooky priest!

Better plan to attend James. Your heros will be there :-)

Question for the day.

Did the Schindlers EVER join a parish here in Florida?

Gee Knutter, once again you babble on in your usual illiterate nasty manner, not knowing anything about the subject.

Pathetic.

Hi Patti!! I see those scum are still trading off their daughter to make their livings. Disgusting!

True, but they made such a big thing about being Devout Catholics, but never had a parish or home church.

Seems to me Devout Catholics should have a church to go to for weekly mass.

Isn't that a requirement in the Church? To go to a weekly Mass?

Many people, not even Catholic, send Mass Cards as a sign of respect. A Mass is not unusual.

I just wondered if these people, who made such a big thing about being Devout Catholics had finally joined a church.

Hi Foo, yes they are still trading on her name. There is a weekly radio show and Bobby goes and makes speeches at RTL gigs. BTW, they are still asking for donations :-)

It's the fourth anniversary of her death. They are still telling the same old lies. Pathetic indeed!!!!

And, yes, it's hard to comment on the case if you don't know anything about it.

I might as well join the fray.Not much of a subject.The only disgusting thing concerning Terri Schiavo,is that she was basically murdered for the convenience of the husband.The Nursing facility is as much to blame for following through,starving her and so on.It was a horrendous testimony of what we humans will do to insure our own personal agenda(as in the husband's case).The Schindlers were in a parish when they were going through their hell on earth,and they had the support an aid of many Catholic priests and sisters,so what is the garbage about that they do not have a parish church?Their fight went global,maybe they spend all their free time going to seminars and speaking at public forums on LIFE and so on.I would not be a bit surprised they have a priest who travels with them and says mass for them.Their having a parish really is not an issue,and it is more than probable they are connected with quite a few Catholics like themselves who love and support them.

Nope, court documents in 2000 and again in perhaps 2002 said they had no parish, no priest to speak for Terri. They were not Devout Catholics.

Father Murphy testified at the trial about Catholic practices and how it was okay to let her go.

Shoot, Bobby even condemned the local parishes for not speaking up against this (Bishop Lynch, I believe).

And you are wrong about the subject as well. The Schindlers lied about her cognition. That was proven many times, by seven Neurologists (four before the doctor's trial), by the court, and again by the autopsy.

They have a priest who travels with them? Says who? Father Pavone did visit the hospice and is going to do the Mass, but I hardly think he travels with them.

No they probably didn't want to bother to tithe to the church. You know they claimed Terri went to church with them all the time.
They used this to point to her "following" the churches teachings. Yet they then turned around and tried to divorce her from Michael??? A bit of talking out of two sides of their faces right?

Why did they not call some of the faithful church leaders and/or congregants at any trials to bolster their claim of her being "a good catholic girl".

Because they had no priest nor parish.

Especially when they are going to pass the donation jug out for all the gullible to fleece right? The Schindlers LIVE off the income they collect to "save" others.

So NO I don't believe the brother who only saw her once a year until the camera's rolled should profit from his sister's image.

You know, I never thought about that. Tithes.

I remember the court recorded in 2000 and later when they tried to make religion an issue that they had no priest or parish to give any information on Terri's views as a Catholic. Nor the family's. Interesting.

Yeah, but most of them don't have collection drugs for their cheesy foundation so they can continue to live of the dead image of their family member now do they?

Many of us light a candle and pray for the memory of our family who have left us. We don't show baby pictures and ask people to open their wallets.

Yup, it was documented that the Schindlers visited her once a month for about 20 minutes and the siblings once a year until the 2000 trial.

What does that say? For one they did not believe she knew if they were there or not and did not visit often enough to make sure she got excellent care.

But someone did. Her husband, the Nursing Home Administrator's Nightmare because he not only wanted great care but her hair done and makeup.

Bobby and Suzanne got interested in time for the 2000 trial, and yes, the cameras :-)

Mr Schindler spoke for his mother and had her vent removed although her physicians said it was possible she could have recovered because it was what he thought SHE would have wanted for herself. She suffocated. Do you think Mr Schindler murdered his mother for his own personal convenience? Do you think the hospital that withdrew the vent should be held responsible? Do you think the Schindlers had the "love and support" of their fellow catholics when they went through the hell of "murdering" Mr Schindler's mother? Do you think it was "a horrendous testimony of what we humans will do to insure our own personal agenda" (as in the son's case)? And may I remind you that Mr Schiavo didn't speak for his wife, Mrs Schiavo's proxy, the court did. Do you think the Schindler family has the right to label themselves "prolife" when Mr Schindler "murdered" his mother? So, if you don't apply the same metric to Mr Schindler and his mother's case as you do to Mrs Schiavo's, it makes you a hypocrit.

Yes, it is as is going on the HIGH mass days. But then they would be given those little envelopes to tithe and that would me giving their "donation money" away..you know that would be WRONG.

What business is it of yours if someone is registered or not? Many people have masses said for the loved ones in their family, it is a wonderful thing to do to remember family members.

I kinda wondered about that.

Seems to me the offerings should go to the University who gave the Mass, but I wonder if the Schindlers and Priests for Life want a share too?

I followed the case and seems to me they made a BIG issue about being Devout Catholics.

Without a priest or parish and not attending Mass weekly and all the required things in the religion, you are not devout. I just wondered if they finally followed through. Just curiosity :-)

And, yes, a Mass is a not a bad thing. And I respect their right to have it.
