With a big hat tip to American Papist
Statement by Father John Jenkins on the Laetare Medal
The following statement from Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame, is in response to the decision by Mary Ann Glendon to decline acceptance of the University’s Laetare Medal:
“We are, of course, disappointed that Professor Glendon has made this decision. It is our intention to award the Laetare Medal to another deserving recipient, and we will make that announcement as soon as possible.” (University of Notre Dame Office of News & Information)
Pssst…Archbishop Sheehan and Bill Richardson…show the world that Catholics can indeed work with Pro-choice politicians.
As the Papist rightly mentions, I would like to see the Preisdent engage Ms. Glendon in some kind of dialogue.
