Film Uncovers the Ancestral and Religious Secrets of the Kennedys

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 02:58 PM

The Kennedy family has been called the closest thing America has to British royalty and part of its mystique is the deep ancestral roots the clan has with Ireland as well as its strong and unbreakable ties with the Catholic Church.

And now, Newsmax TV explores those often-overlooked links in a fascinating documentary, "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings."

It airs Sunday at 4:30 p.m. ET, and it's only on Newsmax TV, America's No. 1 source for breaking news, opinion and information.

For 150 years, the story of the Kennedy family has been inextricably linked to their heritage as Irish-Catholic immigrants.

It began with Patrick Kennedy's 1848 arrival in Brahmin Boston from County Wexford, Ireland, and continued with Joseph Kennedy's strong Vatican ties.

Even Jackie Kennedy, mourning the assassination of her husband President John F. Kennedy took solace in the family's deep religious roots, seeking spiritual counsel with Kennedy-confidante Father Richard McSorley.

Adapted from the book by Thomas Maier, "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings," and directed by Robert Kline, this fascinating look at the Kennedys' Irish roots and the role Irish Catholicism played in their lives, is not to be missed.

Additionally, it explores the remarkable Kennedy women and the political careers of Jack, Bobby, and Ted.

"The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings," adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, the nation's fastest growing news and information channel carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.
