I read this
the other night and got about half of it on first pass. But of course it lingered on so that I knew I would transform it into a post. And now after scanning and reforming it for web readers (more paragraphs, titles, bolding to emphasize the good stuff) I can tell you that this little selection is a gem.
Take the time and read it so after you read it and understand it you can tell yourself just how much better you are for having known it.
God bless Ralph McInerny who passed away last year at age 80. One of his parting comments on the Notre Dame controversy the previous year: “Barack Hussein Obama, enabler-in-chief-of abortion, has agreed to speak at the 2009 commencement and to receive an honorary doctorate of law,” he wrote on the Web site of the conservative magazine National Review. “That abortion and its advocacy violate a primary precept of natural law reinforced by the Catholic Church’s explicit doctrine is a mere bagatelle. Wackos of all kinds will kick up a fuss, of course, but their protest will go unnoticed in South Bend. The pell-mell pursuit of warm and fuzzy Catholicism will continue.”
We miss your voice Ralph so much. It brings tears to my eyes and I never even met you. Just a humble reader.
