View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Speaking of March Madness ...

The Notre Dame brouhaha continues, with more than 195,000 people signing one petition, and now three Bishops speaking up -

“Indeed, as a Catholic University, Notre Dame must ask itself, if by this decision it has chosen prestige over truth… Let us ask Our Lady to intercede for the university named in her honor, that it may recommit itself to the primacy of truth over prestige.”
Bishop John D'Arcy – Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend

“It is a public act of disobedience to the Bishops of the United States.”
Bishop Thomas Olmsted – Bishop of Phoenix

“In my opinion, it is very clear that in this case the University of Notre Dame does not live up to its Catholic identity in giving this award and their leadership needs our prayerful support.”
Bishop Gregory Aymond – Bishop of Austin

I still wait to see what the students and alumni do, as they are the ones more immediately affected.
