Hooray for Mary Ann Glendon! What a tremendous example to our society... turning down the one of the biggest awards from Notre Dame's school for her Catholic Faith... ah, her reward will be in Heaven!

Agreed, Anonymous. I especially liked how she crafted her letter and made it public so ND could not spin it.

She is a class act and an exemplary Catholic!

Laetare indeed. Even in the face of persecution and the ongoing desolation, rejoice, for God is still on His throne. Surely Mary Ann Glendon's honor in refusing this award is far greater than any that might have accrued from accepting it.
