To Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien – congratulations on your clear, concise statement regarding the confusion set upon all of us by the University of Notre Dame and by our neighbor, Georgetown University, which sheepishly pretended not to be Catholic by removing the crucifix, etc. at the request of the White House.
You have shown politely and in a priestly fashion, your concern, and at the same time set about to iterate to us the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ teaching in their 2004 letter.
I am truly happy you are our archbishop, and I pray that you have a long and healthy life among us. Please continue to show us your strong leadership.
