So lots of blogging is going on reflecting on Obama’s speech at Notre Dame. The biggest one I take from it is this: we are a diverse Church, and this provided us an opportunity to show that diversity, and our ability to be not only civil with each other but admit that we are members of a community larger than ourselves. This was confirmed by a friend who remarked that he had never realized how conservative or liberal some Catholics could be. I should invite him to my brother’s wedding — meet my family, and you’ll see that diversity pretty well amongst all sides.
Here are some other interesting takes from the blogosphere and internet articles:
