It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Notre Dame Is No Longer Catholic

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: This historic image was captured just as Notre Dame forfeited it's title as a Catholic university. Is it a sad day for Catholic higher education? Yes, but not a surprising one. This is the product of 30+ years of poor leadership in the U.S. Catholic Church. It is poor leadership at the diocean level, that leads to poor leadership at the level of Catholic organizatons and schools. This isn't the first time Notre Dame, and other Catholic universities, have engaged in activities that specifically attack the Catholic Christian faith. Notre Dame in particular has a long history of this. Today, Notre Dame lost it's title as a Catholic university. It may take some time for that to become official. It may never be official, but in the hearts and minds of faithful pro-life Catholics, it has already happened. When it comes time for my children to apply to Catholic colleges, they will not bother with the anti-Catholic university of Notre Dame. Why would I ever send my kids to a supposed "Catholic" university that does this to Catholic priests, merely for leading people in prayer of the Rosary on a supposedly "Catholic" campus? I dare say these priests would have received better treatment on the campus of a Secular university....
