Opening music, invocation given by graduating student valedictorian, my commentary follows as I listened to and watched live feed via Notre Dame website.

RT @frbill The Holy Mother of God weeps, for her name is being sullied by the people of Notre Dame University"following the example of Notre Dame" student says @ invocation
not call Jesus Christ "our Lord" WHAT!???!?!?!
needs a kneeler and barf bag at the keyboard
of all the priests @ ceremony they picked a girl student graduating to give the invocation?
"to whom much is given, much will be expected" given as secular quote by valedictorian, not scriptural (parable of servant w/ talents)
"ND taught to think critically" that would be true, valedictorian (critical=situational ethics, opinions and feelings, not morals)
deeper consciences and lasting passions from time @ ND, valedictorian says

Fr J quoting Pope Benedict is like Satan quoting Scripture to tempt Jesus

"courtesy and respect" What about those for the off-campus protesters who want to discuss human life???
courtesy and respect for the elderly, priests, nuns, and Norma McCovey who was once known only as Roe and now is for LIFE!!!
