Caroline_KennedyCaroline Kennedy, scion of America’s most famed Catholic family and JFK’s daughter, spoke at an event in California on Ash Wednesday earlier this month, and the smudge on her forehead caused some chatter about her Catholic faith and whom she thinks might make a good pope.

From LA Observed:

Speaking in Pasadena, on the evening of Ash Wednesday, she wore a faint smudge on her forehead. “These are the most indelible ashes I’ve ever gotten,” she said with a smile. “This is my first time to get ashes in California and I can’t believe you just drive by, hop out, get the ashes and get back in the car.”

When asked about her Catholic faith, she said, “It has given me strength and support, but certainly there are things that are difficult, upsetting and sad about the church today.”

On a lighter note, she said she had spent the afternoon with her cousin Maria Shriver. “We think either of us would make a good Pope.”

  1. The author and editor of this article kindly neglected to mention the false
    credentials and tailcoat that Mrs. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg and her family
    have been riding on for nearly a century now; Mrs. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg
    is not the daughter of President John F. Kennedy and he is not related to Joe
    & Rose Kennedy. Mrs. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is not in the same leauge
    as those honorable gentlemen mentioned in the article. President John F.
    Kennedy’s actual daughter has held diplomatic credentials, including carte
    blanche, and is Stockholm honored. She has been unable to travel from the
    interior of the US for about a quarter of a century now. Through hard work done
    well, she is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World and is a
    poet. She has the honor of being presented to the Imperial Family of Japan
    decades ago and the PM who attended the G8 meeting in Denver, Colorado (during
    President Clinton’s administration). As she was beginning to come out of
    amnesia she wrote this poem remembering respect for elders, the scenery of
    Japan and China, the poetry of China, and the design she developed that was
    printed onto a garment worn by Princess Diana, the fabric to be made Japan, if
    she recollects correctly.

    Inconsolable Sorrow

    Born between heaven and earth
    Afloat on a river of stars
    Who knows whose child this is
    This dear ancestor of the gods

    She reaches the Isle of Immortals
    Beyond the expansive Celestial Sea
    She picks the mauve blossoms of the courtyard tree
    You are too far away for her to send them

    She devotes songs to her ancestors
    She sings the clean fragrance of their virtue
    The main melody shifts and varies
    With the lingering omnipresent sadness

    She sleeps alone on Empty Mountain
    Perfect Woman going after nothing
    Responding, but not storing, staying empty
    She sees their faces in her dreams

    They stay not long in her bedchamber
    Leaving dreams quickly
    The singer’s inconsolable sorrow
    Mourns how few truly comprehend.

    President John F. Kennedy’s actual daughter has little interest in an ambassador appointment
    for herself (though she has adult children who might be interested). She waits
    patiently these 3 to 4 decades to be able to communicate with her family and to
    be reunited permanently with her husband (a distant relative, British-born),
    their children, and grandchildren, she, like her parents has no aunts, uncles,
    nieces, nephews, first cousins, or siblings.

    Appointed ambassadors have few responsibilities, the main one being paying for lavish parties. Disgraced former US Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, a supporter of itler and something about tech theft and Mrs. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg’s grandfather who almost got the US into a war with England, but who is not actually President John F. Kennedy’s father (Rosemary & John were repeat kidnappees & concealed & injured, experiences President Kennedy’s actual daughter has also), trolled Hollywood where advanced communications were developed. President John F. Kennedy’s actual daughter waits patiently to return to the gilded cage her husband affords her. When returning to reside abroad she will never have any “power” to wield and most citizens of other countries she’s encountered said they will not place her in any catch-22s about the US and any other country/countries or issues. She received alcolades to the US State Department, unsolicited by her, when rendering medical assistance at natural disaster sites and civil wars through an international relief agency based in England as there was no similar entity in the US at the time (she studied law and medicine through Harvard, her father’s alma mater, advanced economics through the London School of Economics, another of her father’s alma maters, and at the behest of her “Father Gooses” in the US military, she studied advanced physics at a public university in the interior of the US and presented before the United Nations in New York without prepared written text or notes accompanied by Prince Charles (whom she first met through her parents and again at the US British Diplomatic Ball in New York escorted by US Senator Ted (Theodore)/Edward Morehouse Kennedy and again at the Nixon White House–up until the Bush Administration the presidents made a point of inviting her to the White House, her last home with her father, at least once during their administrations), wearing a coatdress fashioned of fabric similar to his suit. As one man phrased it, President John F. Kennedy’s actual daughter brought goodwill to the United States when it was sorely needed.

    When a United States Senator, President John F. Kennedy, already happily married to a working scientist/daughter of a diplomat, was demanded of to dress up and pose for “wedding” style pictures with Miss Jacqueline Bouvier who was shadowing him supposedly for her occasional part-time work as a photographer for a newspaper. A judge who taught about a year at Harvard came forward to say he assisted Mrs. Jacqueline Bouiver Kennedy to obtain a quick divorce from the man she married who temporarily changed his name to John F. Kennedy. Clint is said to be in love with Jackie. It was not until Jackie put her hand behind the neck of President John F. Kennedy after counting down when the book depository/repository came in sight in Dallas that President John F. Kennedy jerked; Clint was wrestling something out of Jackie’s hand on the back of the limo as she was trying to exit. At the mansion in California where it is supposed that President Kennedy had a “honeymoon” with Jackie, what actually happened is his being in a series of meetings with not-nice people; it was all very tense–she and her mother/President Kennedy’s actual wife happened to be there. President John F. Kennedy’s actual daughter cannot be bound by whatever transpired at those meetings. President John F. Kennedy’s actual daughter is responsible for only herself.
