As I've been saying, The Davinci Code movie underscores the need for the presence of faithful Catholics in the Media. John Paul the Great Catholic University comes on the scene just at the right time.
Over the weekend a tidal wave of support for the school has come from the Catholic blogosphere. I want to thank all those bloggers who have picked up this story -- let's continue to spread the word.
Mike Aquilina comments:
That’s a compelling vision. I don’t have to tell visitors to this blog about the papacy’s other two “Greats” — Leo and Gregory — and how those men turned the challenging circumstances of their day to the benefit of the Gospel. I think they, and John Paul, would approve of this “Great” effort.Curt Jester writes: "You got to love a school that uses 'magisterial teaching' in a promotion video."
The Cafeteria is Closed explains, "A different kind of Catholic University is what John Paul the Great Catholic University sets out to become." Of course, he was on this months ago.
A number of other blogs have joined in the campaign, including:
AmericanPapist, Built on a Rock (Bill Cork), A Catholic Life, For God, For Country and For Yale.
Thanks to all of you who have joined in and to those who have mentioned my site (you'll all be added to my blogroll -- just give me a little time).
I'm hoping to see more bloggers add their voices to this very worthy cause.
Make sure you watch that promotional video everyone is raving about.
The trust Dr. Connolly has put in the Lord by putting everything he has on the on-line for this new school is truly inspiring. JP Catholic really needs all the help it can get - prayers, students and funds.
Here again is my original post.
