Our Lady- Notre Dame

My sister at Salve Regina posted the You Tube video of Fr. Corapi's speech about the Notre Dame scandal; one of the things he says is that the leadership of the bishops in this matter is a sign of hope, and to pray for them. We need to restore the Catholic identity of our institutions of learning, so that they may provide "strong and uncompromising moral leadership" for the restoration of our nation (Canada too!) Without education our youth will not understand their faith, and will be swayed by the pressures of the world; without faith, the moral decay of our nations will accelerate; without prayer, faith is weakened, and the power of darkness prevails. Pray! Pray without ceasing! In this particular matter, pray to "Notre Dame" - Our Lady- to intervene.
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
Our Lady of Good Hope, pray for us.
Our Lady of Good Counsel, pray for us.

Unfortunately, I think the die is cast in Notre Dame's decision to honor President Obama. How sad that they refuse to acknowledge and stand for the principles that are central to our faith. Perhaps they figure they're getting enough money through tuitions that they don't require any support from the Church. But our opposition - letters, speeches such as the one you mention in your post, editorials, petitions - will hopefully serve as a clarion call to all Catholic institutions in the future.

God bless you.
