Malloy: ‘Images of Hell’

| Sunday, September 11, 2011

Following Sept. 11, 2001, University President Emeritus Fr. Edward “Monk” Malloy said he had to see the site of the terrorist attacks for himself and visited Ground Zero about a month after the event.

Ten years later, he still remembers the “acrid” smell of the site and how it looked — like images of hell in Medieval paintings.

Listen to Malloy talk about his experience, and how it relates back to Notre Dame.
