Archbishop Burke & Thomas More Take On Obama – A society that masks ‘totalitarianism’ with ‘hope’ will destroy itself

CNA Reports:

Using the example of St. Thomas More, Archbishop Raymond Burke exhorted legal professionals present at Tuesday’s Red Mass in St. Mary’s Cathedral to keep God before their eyes as they strive to administer justice amidst a “society which is abandoning its Judeo-Christian foundations.”

The archbishop began his homily by explaining the origins of the Red Mass, a tradition dating to the Middle Ages. Noting that there was a stronger understanding of the “essential unity” of faith and reason in that time period, he said that celebrating Mass “at the beginning of the new judicial year pointed to the irreplaceable foundation of the service of pronouncing the just and the right on behalf of one’s brothers and sisters.”

He also explained that red vestments are worn during the Mass for two reasons: judges in the Middle Ages wore red robes and because they remind “us of the perfect obedience of our Lord Jesus Christ” in obeying the call of the Holy Spirit to lay down our own lives.

Archbishop Burke then presented the story of St. Thomas More, a lawyer who was martyred for choosing to serve God instead of the king. The patron saint of lawyers, the archbishop reminded, is known for exclaiming, “I die the king’s good servant, and God’s first.” “Saint Thomas More understood that there could be no contradiction between his service of his nation and his service of God, and that, in fact, he could only serve his nation truly and faithfully by his true and faithful service of God,” Archbishop Burke declared.

Fr. Hesburgh Praises Obama Visit

In the Fall issue of the Notre Dame Magazine former ND President Fr. Ted Hesburgh praises Obama’s visit:

This year’s commencement was indeed “a defining moment” for Notre Dame because we didn’t duck the big issue of our times and the horrendous fact of so many millions of unborn children being coldly killed that brought this to a head. I trust that all of this will have an effect on the national debate and, hopefully, we will see greater efforts to, at least for now, lower the number of abortions and come up with positive programs to help unfortunate women who find themselves in this difficult situation and are persuaded to take the easy way out. Thanks for delineating the issue front and center.

Professor Charles Rice Circulates Blistering Open Letter to Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins

FreeTheND88.com – the site sponsored by the Thomas More Law Society posts comments from Prof. Rice’s recent open letter to Fr. Jenkins. The Society which won the landmark NOW vs Scheidler Supreme Court cases – is now taking on Jenkins and Notre Dame in defense of the 88 Pro-Life protesters arrested on the ND campus prior to Obama’s visit.

Professor Emeritus Charles E. Rice of Notre Dame Law School is circulating an Open Letter to Notre Dame President Father John M. Jenkins in which he highlights the “deficiencies” in Jenkins recent “pro-life” announcement. We will get to that in a moment but let’s skip right to the best part — a scathing passage which comes at the end of what is an absolutely relentless, methodical 2,500-word annihilation of the flimsy and now-teetering justifications put forward by the University for sitting on their hands while the criminal justice systems grinds down on the 88 people arrested last May now facing trial for criminal trespass.
