    I salute AveMaria University for promoting moral principles in contrst to the charade at Notre Dame Univ. Notre Dame must be held accountable for their terrible decision.

    Ave Maria University shall never progress if it continues to serve as a madrassa. The orthodox wing of Catholicism will continue to wither the Church. May God have mercy on us all.

    One can not feel a little saddened when one reads this story. I can't believe how mixed up everything is right now. At the same time, this story brings me joy, because there is hope, that we do have some examples of our faith proudly on display for the world to see.

    In America, in this certain period of time, we as a culture are so impatient. We want all these horrible things to go away immediately. As Father Corapi says we must concentrate on one soul at a time.

    Although Ava Maria is a small little university compared to the big Notre Dame. These little glimpses of hope can prove to be a saving grace for future generations to come.

    Knowing how controversial this subject is, it seems that president Obama should have, or still could, decline the invitation.

    I've been following the establishment and growth of Ave Maria University for several years and have been favorably impressed. Those of you who are looking for a place to support Catholic studies and values have one here. Pray, pray, pray. I would hope that Catholic schools and other Catholic institutions can begin to wean themselves from federal dollars. It's the only way we will be able to untangle these dishonest liaisons and do what we know our Lord wants us to do.
