Dream schools

Sue Chambers | Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Reading the article on a dream college , I thought it was well balanced in its comments. I would like to add one that was left out. By the fact that Notre Dame continues to be in the top 10 of this list, it was pointed out that it is the only religious affiliation as well as the only Catholic institution to make the list. This brings with it more visibility and so on. This should also bring with it more responsibility to stand up for its Catholic identity. There is more responsibility to represent Catholic values and not take a step back but to take a step up when called to stand for the truth. To whom much is given, much is expected. If Notre Dame is visible let it be so we can stand and be leaders and uphold what the Catholic church teaches us to stand up for. This responsibility starts at the top. Ask honestly, has this been what has happened in recent times?
