Welcome to Baby No. 7 Billion!

Posted on November 7, 2011 in News

According to the United Nations, the world community saw the birth of its seven billionth member this month. While some may hesitate to see this birth as nothing more than fearful evidence of the myth of overpopulation, we are happy to join the celebrations that welcome this child to its earthly home! As one new mother in Nigeria said, “Where there is life, there is hope.”

With every new life there is joy, as well as the reminder that this new child is born into a community where interdependent rights and responsibilities are crucial for the thriving of each of its members. May we never forget that we are “our brother’s keeper”, but may we always see this as a priviledge not a burden!

Posted on February 1, 2011 in March for Life, Notre Dame

Here are some pictures of the Notre Dame contingent at January 24th’s March for Life in Washington, D.C. We brought 375 students on seven buses. We were joined by university president Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., and about 40 faculty and staff, and approximately 400,000 others in standing for the dignity of life. Thank you to all who made the trip a success!
