Register Radio Highlights Newman Society's Catholic Commencement Report

Dan Burke hosted Cardinal Newman Society president Patrick J. Reilly on Register Radio this morning for a discussion of the Society's work and the good, the bad and the ugly in Catholic university commencements in 2013.


Reilly noted that a number of Catholic universities elected to honor cardinals and bishops at their graduation ceremonies, while a diminishing number of institutions honored individuals opposed to Catholic moral principles.

A particularly grievous example of a commencement scandal, noted Reilly, was Boston College's honor for Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who has been actively pursuing pro-abortion legislation in that country.  Cardinal Sean O'Malley boycotted the Boston College commencement.

Burke also asked about the Newman Society's program, the National Catholic High School Honor Roll.  Reilly discussed the Society's continuing work to promote faithful Catholic education at the high school level and immediate plans for the honor roll project.
