Archbishop Burke at Prayer Breakfast

The National Catholic Prayer Breakfast is going on right now. Archbishop Raymond Burke and Justice Antonin Scalia will be there.

Jack Smith at "The Catholic Key" reports that Tom Hoopes at the National Catholic Register will be liveblogging from the event. Archbishop Burke is already at work:

Hoopes - “What should the Church do about Notre Dame?” I asked Archbishop Raymond Burke last night. His answer:

AB Burke - “What it should do is have Notre Dame come clean. Is it Catholic or isn’t it? A Catholic institution, a Catholic university, cannot give honors to someone who is a promoter of things that are opposed to the most fundamental beliefs of Catholics, and so that’s what needs to happen.”


UPDATE: Jack Smith has posted His Excellency's full address at "The Catholic Key."

A sample:

"The path of violation of the most fundamental human rights and of the integrity of marriage and the family which our nation is traveling is not accidental," he said. "

As Catholics, we cannot fail to notice with the greatest sadness the number of our fellow Catholics who cooperate fully to the advancement of a national agenda which is anti-life and anti-family."

Speaking of abortion, Father Molloy, did you happen to see this story linked on Fr. Z's blog?,2933,519181,00.html
What a remarkable story. This child could have been "terminated" with a partial-birth abortion, but is now alive and well, and of course a pro-lifer. He reached out and clung to the doctor's hand from the womb--thank God the doctor was there to heal him and not to "terminate" him!

What a blessed event has been caused by Notre Dame's scandalous invitation to President Barack Obama. Catholics mobilized to show God’s love of life. One million rosaries to Our Lady for life is the goal. Notre Dame must stay Catholic for Ad maiorem Dei gloriam.
