Another Notre Dame take

 |  NCR Today

I found this essay, dealing with the role of Catholicism and higher education, especially on the mark.

Among the points the author, Patricia McGuire, makes is the following:

She writes: "The real scandal at Notre Dame today is not that the president of the United States spoke at commencement, albeit causing some controversy among Catholics. The real scandal is the misappropriation of sacred teachings for political ends."

Happy Easter from all of us at NCR!
