    Thank you for your article, Mr. McIntire. What has transpired indeed is truly sad, and I can only have some idea, but not really know through personal experience, the pain that this betrayal has caused particularly to the alumni of Notre Dame such as yourself.

    While it may be against all odds, I cannot help but entertain some hope, no matter how small, that Notre Dame can be restored to loyalty and faithfulness to the Catholic Church. I say this because as long as Mass is being offered there, that is the best sign of hope. The few knowledgeable and faithful ones at Notre Dame also constitute another sign of hope for Notre Dame. Through them, by their prayers, sacrifices and efforts, let the rest of Notre Dame's student body and even at least some of the faculty be catechized as to the true Catholic Faith. And by them, let the false and fraudulent Catholic face of the Notre Dame leadership be exposed, and those that wear that fraudulent Catholic face be expelled from Notre Dame. The article that you have written can be the beginning of the process of exposing the fraudulent Catholic face of the leadership of Notre Dame.

    Let the mammon of the Rockefellers be returned to them. Or going forward, let it be refused. The present prestige of Notre Dame is shameful. It is a prestige that consists mainly of worldly glory at the expense of the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. Our Savior rejected that offer of worldly glory by the Devil when he was tempted by him in the desert. Yet the leadership of Notre Dame accepted it, though perhaps unwittingly.

    Shall the venerable name of Our Lady, Notre Dame, be abandoned in the hands of these false Catholic leaders so that they may continue to malign her name, her Son, and His Church and spread a false gospel? That, to me, seems unthinkable.

    May God help us and guide us in how to evangelize or re-evangelize our Catholic brothers and sisters in Catholic campuses, as well as in Catholic parishes, throughout the U.S.. In Jesus' name. Amen.
