The Formerly Catholic University of Notre Dame

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia didn’t hold back in criticizing the University of Notre Dame’s honor of abortion and same-sex marriage advocate Vice President Joe Biden with the Laetare Medal earlier this year. He called the honor “a contradiction of Notre Dame’s identity” and “a baffling error of judgment” during a recent address on campus. “What the Church needs now is a university that radiates the glory of God in an age that no longer knows what it means to be human,” he added. “What the people of God need now is a university that fuses the joy of Francis with the brilliance of Benedict and the courage, fidelity and humanity of the great John Paul.”
