I have barely posted lately, I know, and this is not exclusive news by any stretch. Most people who read this site probably already know about it, but just in case:
Notre Dame invited President Obama to speak at this year's commencement, and he accepted.
The president, Fr. John Jenkins, defended the choice.
And now the bishop has announced he will not attend the ceremonies. As my friend and ND alum Ginna said, "Bishop D'Arcy lays the SMACK DOWN."
