    Is the pandemic kaput? Clearly, not for some. And if it isn’t over yet, when might it ever be? COVID-19 isn’t going away — it’s part of the planet now. Apropos of its endurance, there’s news at the University of Notre Dame. These days, we’ve gleaned a couple of facts concerning the COVID vaccine: It doesn’t prevent COVID infection. It doesn’t prevent COVID transmission. Hence, contrary to claims by plenty of politicians, the pricks do not protect “other people.” ... Yet, on Tuesday, Notre Dame’s University Health Services reportedly made an injection-requiring announcement. Per an email posted by post-graduate fellow...

    Notre Dame’s Tamara Kay claims she’s promoting abortion not as a professor but ‘as a private citizen, so that’s been cleared by the university.’A professor in the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs has offered to assist Notre Dame students to obtain abortion pills — against both Notre Dame policy and, until recently, against Indiana law. Notre Dame officials have sought to dissociate themselves from her statements, but they have done little to prevent her actions. How it BeganAs Indiana has long been a very pro-life state, the overturning of Roe v Wade seemed likely to lead...

    As reconstruction work advances, the cleaning and restoration of Notre-Dame’s famed stained glass, which survived the heat and the flames, also goes forward.Notre-Dame de Paris has been closed for restoration since April 2019, after a massive fire destroyed its roof, which crashed through the vaults below. As reconstruction work advances, the cleaning and restoration of Notre-Dame’s stained glass windows, which survived the heat and the flames, also goes forward. Almost three years after the tragic blaze, eight French glass manufactures are currently cleaning and restoring around 40 windows in the main nave, the choir, the transept, and the sacristy of...

    All throughout last week, some five or six Coptic churches in Egypt have “caught fire”— ... the Church of Abu Seifein (named after Saint Mercurius of Caesarea, who is revered by the Copts). At least 41 Christians — 18 of whom were children — were either burned alive, killed by asphyxiation, or ... Considering that Muslims have torched or bombed hundreds of Coptic churches over the decades in Egypt — and often when churches are packed — it is, of course, difficult to resist that explanation. Moreover, this last week was the “anniversary” of when Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers torched 62...

    Archaeologists working to restore Paris’s fire-damaged Notre Dame cathedral have discovered something remarkable: previously unknown tombs hidden beneath the 850-year-old Gothic church. Workers made the discovery while installing ground-level scaffolding to help rebuild the church’s fallen spire, according to a statement from the French Ministry of Culture. When they realized that there was something buried at the spot where the transept crosses the nave, the cathedral called in the Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research to investigate. What they found were several tombs and a leaden sarcophagus, probably dating to the 14th century. “The floor of the transept crossing has revealed...

    Oklahoma state Rep. Forrest Bennett (D), who describes himself as a "pragmatic progressive," walked back a legislative proposal that attempted to corner pro-life advocates. Instead, pro-life advocates and conservatives agreed with the premise of the proposed legislation, while progressives sharply criticized him. What happened? Bennett announced on Twitter that he had introduced HB3129 to codify that "a father’s financial responsibility to his baby & their mom begins at conception." "If Oklahoma is going to restrict a woman’s right to choose, we sure better make sure the man involved can’t just walk away from his responsibility," Bennett declared. The bill would...

    It would only require one or two results this weekend – none of them farfetched – for Notre Dame to reach the College Football Playoff for the third time in four seasons, including each of the past two. Maybe Georgia blows out Alabama. Maybe Baylor or Iowa beat Oklahoma State or Michigan. Maybe Cincinnati stumbles. That’s it. That’s all it would take. If it happens, Notre Dame will compete once again in the playoff … only this time without its head coach. It is the latest example of a sport gone mad – with money, with realignment, with championship aspirations,...

    The man who is creating the blueprints for Notre Dame’s makeover, Fr. Gilles Drouin, is a teacher of liturgy and an enthusiastic detractor of the traditional rite.(LifeSiteNews) — When the London Telegraph published an exclusive story last Friday about the “woke ‘Disney’ revamp” that is being planned for Notre Dame cathedral in Paris after the destruction of its roof and spire by fire on Monday of the Holy Week of 2019, it came as a complete surprise to most. Incredulity was probably the dominant reaction — however, a few days later, the Telegraph’s story, tragically, appears to be only too...

Another idea included a glass swimming pool on the roof of the cathedral.This came after President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister announced there would be a competition in design to rebuild the infamous cathedral.The alter Crucifix...

    Paris’s fire-ravaged Notre-Dame cathedral risks resembling a “politically correct Disneyland” under controversial plans for its renovation seen by The Telegraph. Critics have warned that the world-famous cathedral will be turned into an “experimental showroom” under plans to dramatically change the inside of the medieval building. Under the proposed changes, confessional boxes, altars and classical sculptures will be replaced with modern art murals, and new sound and light effects to create “emotional spaces”. There will be themed chapels on a “discovery trail”, with an emphasis on Africa and Asia, while quotes from the Bible will be projected onto chapel walls in...

    From racist boulders to offensive syrup and butter, everything must be canceled. This means you, Leprechaun! The Quality Logo Products Blog has deemed the revered mascot of Notre Dame among the most offensive college mascots in America, based on recent polling. The leprechaun came in fourth place behind Hawaii’s Vili the Warrior, San Diego State’s Aztec Warrior and Florida State’s Osceola and Renegade. But the university wasn’t having the ridiculous categorization, and in what has now become a rarity, they did not apologize. “It is worth noting … that there is no comparison between Notre Dame’s nickname and mascot and...
