DISGRACE: Principles have to count for something and without being maintained, we are nothing. How does an academic institution founded on religious princliples turn their back on everything that they stand for just for one man? Just a reminder to Notre Dame Administration, Notre Dame, means “Our Lady”
Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world by your generous consent! Receive our gratitude, and by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable them to make our peace with God.
Holy Mary, help the miserable, strengthen the discouraged, comfort the sorrowful, pray for your people, plead for the clergy, intercede for all women consecrated to God. May all who venerate you feel now your help and protection. Be ready to help us when we pray, and bring back to us the answers to our prayers. Make it your continual concern to pray for the people of God, for you were blessed by God and were made worthy to bear the Redeemer of the world, who lives and reigns forever. Amen.
What would Jesus say about the sanctity of life?
The last time I checked the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN was a private, Catholic University that had not accepted and federal Barack Obama bailout money. The last time I also checked the Catholic Church was against abortion and murder. So how does Barack Obama, one of the most radical, liberal, pro-abortion President ever to grace the White House who supports abortion. get asked to speak at the ND Commencement Ceremony? The president of the University of Notre Dame, Father John Jenkins, has just given another reason for people to hate Notre Dame and destroy it in the process.
- Barack Obama passed in his first 50 days the funding of foreign abortions with your tax dollars.
- Tax payer money will also go to the killing of Embryos
From the Notre Dame website on Faith and Service.
From its earliest days, Notre Dame’s distinctive mission has set it apart from other institutions of higher education. The difference lies not so much in terms of subject matter and academic disciplines as in the perception of how those disciplines ought to serve God and humanity. At the very heart of Notre Dame’s mission is its profound faith heritage and aspiration to be at the center of Catholic intellectual life—to be a bellwether institution in the pursuit of truth and knowledge, while remaining guided and elevated by the moral imperatives of the Catholic faith.
So much for that pesky 6th Commandment of Thou Shall Not Kill
Since it was announced that Obama would speak there has been a backlash at Notre Dame. It makes no difference whether Obama won some idiotic mock election at ND or whether he won the Presidency as to why he is allowed to speck at graduation. Does Obama adhere to the protection of life policy espoused by the Catholic Church? The answer is no.
In today’s edition of the student newspaper, The Observer, letters to the editor, which are usually reserved for debates over the color of The Shirt or whether it’s proper to chant “Sucks” at sporting events — was expanded to cover a lively debate over whether Obama should be speaking.
“Obama choice unacceptable,” read one headline, and “Obama a disgrace” shouted another.
Sadly, The University of Notre Dame is sticking with its invitation to President Obama to speak at its May 17 commencement despite criticism. It is just another example of how liberals have taken over Academia and the Church. Maybe the ND Alumni needs to make some calls and withdraw their donations.
