    A group of 88 faculty members at Notre Dame - none of which are part of the law school where Judge Barrett teaches - penned a letter asking her to refuse her appointment to the Supreme Court. "We’re asking a lot, we know," the opponents wrote. "Should Vice-President Biden be elected, your seat on the court will almost certainly be lost. That would be painful, surely. Yet there is much to be gained in risking your seat."
  • Was Notre Dame President Jenkins the super spreader from the SCOTUS Event that cause POTUS Trump Diagnosis?

    Pretty good chance Notre Dame President Jenkins was the super spreader, and gave it to President Trump and many others at SCOTUS event. Ask how I can figure this out and NO one else is discussing it.... So I’ll say it. Does anyone believe that a possibility exists that this was deliberate. When did Jenkins learn this “Colleague” (code word for?.?), had covid. Was it prior to Saturday’s scotus event in the rose garden? How is this not front page news regarding contact tracing. I find it interesting he comes back from scotus event and releases a statment last Monday...

    CNA Staff, Sep 23, 2020 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- After fire toppled the iconic spire and destroyed the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France in April 2009, heated debates ensued about whether the reconstruction should use the church’s original design, or use a more modern design and technique. Some proposed futuristic ideas included a rooftop swimming pool and a greenhouse atop the 850-year-old cathedral. Last year, the French Senate passed a bill mandating that Notre-Dame be rebuilt as it was before the fire, with lumber and medieval carpentry techniques, which were highlighted in a public demonstration...

    Lou Holtz, former football coach at Notre Dame University, spoke at the Republican National Convention, slamming Democratic nominee Joe Biden as “Catholic in name only” for his radical pro-abortion policies. Notre Dame, a supposedly Roman Catholic university run by catholic clergy, issued a statement disavowing his comments. Over the years, Notre Dame has shown a decidedly radical liberal bent in its teachings and actions. It has taken an agnostic view toward abortion, despite the Vatican’s strong condemnation of the practice. And when it comes to political candidates who profess their catholicism, who run on their religious affiliation and support unfettered...

    Alabama and Notre Dame are scheduled to play a home-and-home series in 2028 and 2029. They will not, however, play in a makeshift nonconference game this season, according to Crimson Tide athletic director Greg Byrne. The idea of Alabama and Notre Dame playing in Week 1 of the 2020 season was floated this past week by a member of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic on the "Thom Abraham Show." The suggestion came after the Pac-12's move to cancel nonconference games this fall in response to growing concern over the COVID-19 pandemic, and among the matchups to be canceled as a result...

    The University of Notre Dame was in a strong financial position before the coronavirus pandemic. Now, it faces “significant budget challenges” and is currently projecting a $100 million loss in revenue for the upcoming fiscal year, according to a letter issued to the school community. With an operating budget at $1.7 billion, officials were already expecting a revenue loss of $44 million for the current fiscal year, which ends on June 30. Much of that has been attributed to the university returning $22 million to students in spring undergraduate room and board fees, as well as the loss of auxiliary...

    Unidentified arsonists placed a large trash bin against a side door of the Saint-Pierre cathedral in Rennes late last week and set the contents on fire, in an apparent attempt to torch the church. Rennes firefighters arrived in time to put out the fire, which they believe to have been intentionally set since the bin was brought from an adjacent street and deliberately placed outside the door. The incident took place during the night from the 11th to 12th of June. It was the owner of a neighborhood restaurant who sounded the alarm, shortly before 2:00am. “I started to smell...

    We are studying the Civil War as a family these days, and unlike many other historical events, there is no shortage of good films dealing with the this topic, among them: Glory, Gods and Generals, and Gettysburg. We watched Gettysburg last night. I hadn’t seen it since it was originally released in 1993 when I saw it on the big screen. Since that time, I have visited the battlefield at least twice. The last time was in 2016 with my oldest daughter on our way back from a homeschool conference in Maryland. It was during that visit that we came...

    Social restrictions and lockdown measures in France due to the coronavirus have pushed reconstruction for Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral even further, despite already running months behind schedule. The prized Parisian church became engulfed in flames on April 15, 2019, resulting in the collapse of its iconic spire and significant damage to one of its landmark towers. It has been suspected that an electrical short circuit or a cigarette butt caused the fire that began in the attic of the structure. “The restoration phase will no doubt begin during 2021,” said Monsignor Patrick Chauvet... Work on the building had been slated...

    ‘Everything at this school is extremely white’ ‘Under the auspices of religion, they do harm. They do great harm’ A forum Wednesday at the University of Notre Dame featured panelists who urged the university to pay reparations to blacks and Native Americans. Panelist Savanna Morgan, a senior at Notre Dame, said black and indigenous communities have a “right” to pursue reparations at Notre Dame. These reparations are “indeed monetary,” she said, adding they are “equally psychological and symbolic.” Morgan said one of the “appropriate remedies” for Notre Dame is “taking our $13.8 billion endowment out of this one mile radius...

    The French general overseeing the reconstruction of fire-devastated Notre Dame Cathedral says the Paris landmark is not saved yet because there’s still a risk its vaulted ceilings might collapse. Gen. Jean-Louis Georgelin told French broadcaster CNews on Sunday that “the cathedral is still in a state of peril” after last year’s fire, which destroyed its roof and toppled its 300-foot, 750-ton spire as the cathedral was undergoing renovations. “Notre Dame is not saved because ... there is an extremely important step ahead, which is to remove the scaffolding that had been built around the spire” before the fire, he said....
