Hattip to my friend Feddie at Southern Appeal. In a scathing letter Archbishop Eusebius J. Beltran of Oklahoma City denounces the decision of Notre Dame to pay homage on May 17, 2009 to President Obama.

For those American Catholic readers who aren’t familiar with my previous online life, I’m on my third year of blogging through Dante’s Divine Comedy on my personal blog as a Lenten exercise. On the category page here you can find entries for the entirely of the Inferno and nearly all of Purgatorio, which I should be wrapping up by Easter.
Time and motivation permitting, I may start Paradiso during Easter season — or perhaps I’ll have to save that for next year. If you’re interested, feel free to stop by and read along in this timeless spiritual and literary classic during what remains of Lent.
