Professor Charles E. Rice on the Notre Dame Controversy Comments

The invitation should be withdrawn. It implies no personal animosity to suggest that Fr. Jenkins and the other Fellows and Trustees responsible for this fiasco should resign or be removed. Continue Reading

    This is an extremely good article and an extremely good suggestion by Professor Rice. I will pray, also, on May 17th though I cannot be at the Grotto. God Bless you all, Professor Rice and Notre Dame.

    I think it is time for catholics to speak up and correct this problem at Notre Dame. The behavior of the the president of Notre Dame will lead to a loss of applicants and donations. If he is not removed he will do more damage to the Catholic Church than can be imagined. Yes, we all make mistakes but mistakes always come with consequences. This mistake will not only effect Notre Dame but the Catholic Church as well. MV

    I disagree with Prof. Rice. We do not need to be hidden away at the Grotto, where no one will see our outrage except EWTN. The reason this has happened is because we have been too quiet. We need to be on the Streets of Notre Dame, with our rosaries and our signs. Catholic's standing up for what our church is supposed to stand for. We need to start standing up to take back our school and our Universities like Notre Dame.

    Grand idea! Excellent suggestion Mr. Rice! If the graduating class, the faculty, and staff attend the praying of the Rosary at the Grotto instead of attending their own commencement, or quietly stand up and proceed to the grotto when Obama is introduced, that would be a great sacrifice - faithful and inspiring. After all, Jesus did not come to bring peace...
    I plan on attending the Grotto...
    I appreciate your faith Mr. Rice.
