Photo Journal of Commencement Weekend 2009

Notre Dame's 2009 Commencement Weekend was a little different from past years. With University's announcement that President Obama would be the principle speaker at the Commencement, as well as recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Laws degree, the campus quickly became the epicenter of an intense debate of politics, morals, religion, secularism, and etc. Here are some photos taken in the days leading up to Commencement as well as of the Commencement Day events hosted by the Notre Dame Response Student Coalition (www.NDResponse.com).

God bless all of you young people -especially those of you who boycotted your own graduation - to support life (and the Church that teaches God's law of life) this past weekend. What a painful mess Father Jenkins inflicted on all of you; one can't even imagine what a Catholic priest would have been thinking to do such a thing.

In the meantime, on another blog I discovered some words that accurately contextualize this whole situation. "... mothers have been giving their lives for their children all through human history. It is precisely what they are supposed to do if push comes to shove and the life of their child, born or unborn, is imperiled. What sort of mother would not give her life for her child? That's why the pro-life movement is so critical right now. This is the first age in history where instead of being ready to die for their children, women are fighting for the right to murder their own children. This is not a women's issue, it is a societal issue because women are demanding the right to mutilate womanhood and motherhood into a monstrous deformity that has never before been seen in human history." For those who are confused, this is what we believe is at stake.
