Chiming in on Notre Shame

Let me share with you a quotation recently found in the Washington Post that was emailed to me by a priest friend:

"In the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian, there is a wonderful photograph of Father Ted Hesburgh -- then Notre Dame president -- linking hands with Martin Luther King Jr. at a 1964 civil-rights rally at Chicago's Soldier Field. Today, nearly four decades and 50 million abortions after Roe v. Wade, there is no photograph of similar prominence of any Notre Dame president taking a lead at any of the annual marches for life. Father Jenkins is right: That's not ambiguity. That's a statement."

What a sad state of affairs when priorities are so confused.
