US President at the Latin Mass Every Sunday

There are lots of photos of President Kennedy on his way to or from Mass at St. Edward's in Palm Beach, always holding his prayer book.

Kennedy attended Mass at different times, that way, people didn’t know when he would show up and the church wouldn’t be overrun with crowds. Some of the ladies, however, would attend every Mass when the President was in town to improve their odds of catching a glimpse. 



  2. It is interesting to note that LBJ was sworn in, on the plane, after the assassination, using JFK's missal, as the famous photo shows. Rumour has it that the oath was done again on "A Bible" - probably King James - just to make sure "it was kosher."
