I'd like to personally congratulate Fr. Jenkins, who was officially inaugurated today as the new President of the University of Notre Dame. He nodded and smiled at me this afternoon during the academic procession, and I'll be praying that he serves Our Lady's University with integrity and clear leadership.
Also, I'd like to extend my condolences to a classmate of mine, Brendan Loy, who lost a friend, Sarah, earlier this week. The Notre Dame family will be praying for him and his friend's family and friends as they grieve their loss.
