Francis Cardinal George wears two hats, and I am not just referring to his mitre and biretta. He has one as the Archbishop of Chicago and the other as head of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
It was in his role as the latter that Francis Cardinal George spoke in grave terms about the 'extreme embarrassment' Notre Dame University has caused Catholics everywhere.
He is referring to the University's decision to invite President Barack Obama to deliver the 2009 commencement address. To add insult to injury, the University bearing the name of the Mother of Our Lord has also decided to confer an honorary Doctor of Laws degree on the most anti-life President the United States has ever had.
Thanks to Franics Cardinal George and the USCCB for taking a stand on this issue.
