All I can say is...

I am saddened to read about what's going on at Notre Dame University; I think this is a major sell-out. Nothing more than that. To help out the cause, go here and sign this petition. So far 156,000 (roughly) have already signed it. It's simple to do. I just did.

Catholic Teen,

Don't be saddened, let it motivate you: http://www.notredamescandal.com/

Remember: life is a big chess game. The goal to outwit your opponents, not let them get to you.

No matter what the odds, no matter what the obstacles, you'll play the game better if you stay objective.

You'll also enjoy it more.

"...what tho' the odds be great or small..."

I am writing a letter to Fr. Jenkins, the president of the university. As an alumnus, I am very disappointed and frustrated in his decision and invitation. I am particularly interested in learning of Fr. Jenkins' reasoning in giving this honorary degree in contradiction to the US Bishops' instruction of 2004, that Catholic institutions should not give honors, awards, or recognition to those who take public positions in opposition to the Church's teachings and faith. This invitation evidently comes under some kind of exemption of which I am unaware. The US Bishops' instruction applied to all Catholic institutions. Perhaps Fr. Jenkins' understanding of "Catholic institution" is incomplete. Perhaps his understanding of ND is different than that of the local bishop, the Most Rev. John D'Arcy, who up to this point has considered ND a Catholic institution. Why would a non-Catholic institution extend an annual invitation to the local Catholic bishop?

Lots of questions are being directed to the administration at ND concerning the use of the word "Catholic" -- but not a lot of answers have been forthcoming.

This is so sad and frustrating. My heart goes out to those faithful graduating seniors who have been put in a position of trying to decide to attend their own commencement ceremony. The process by which this invitation was discerned and determined to be a good thing is insensitive to this concern of the graduating faithful. I agree with Bp. D'Arcy's decision; sadly, there will be others who will absent themselves from attending because they do not wish to participate in scandal, a scandal which should never have happened, and was entirely avoidable was there a true spirit of cooperation with the Holy Spirit and the virtue of fidelity in the administration of the university.
