Cardinal Dolan: Obama's 'gay marriage' support undermines society
Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan is charging President Barack Obama with undermining the “very cornerstone of society” by supporting “gay marriage.” Cardinal Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, described the president’s endorsement as “deeply saddening.” The bishops “cannot be silent in the face of words or actions that would undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society,” he said in a May 9 statement. “The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better.
On April 28th, the Newman Club held its annual Banquet and Ball. A great crowd was in attendance to hear guest speaker, Fr. Mike Baldwin. Mr. and Miss Newmanite awards were given to Grant Gabel and Rosanna Sayler and the Outstanding Male and Female Member awards were given to Travis Irion and Mandy Scheer. Mr. Ken Burbach, representing the Newman Endowment, awarded scholarships to 18 Newman Club Members. As a surprise to Mr. Burbach, Fr. Adam announced that starting this year, each year there will be a scholarship given in Ken's honor. Ken has dedicated over 40 years in service to the Newman Center and is retiring this year. After the great meal and all the awards and scholarships, the students danced the night away.

A Prayer before studying for exams
“God of Wisdom, I thank you for the knowledge gained and the learning experiences of the semester. I come to you this day and ask you to illuminate my mind and heart. Let your Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams, guiding my studies, and giving me insight so that I can perform to the best of my ability. Please grant me the strength to handle the pressure during these final days of the semester, the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge, and the ability to keep an appropriate perspective through it all. Help me to keep in mind what is truly important, even as I focus my time and energy on these tests in the immediate future. Finally, may I sense your peace in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day.” Amen
The Creed - Don't be a Robot
When you recite the Creed, are you being real or are you being a robot? Do you even know what you are saying? Is there a difference between believing there is a God and believing in God?

Fishers of Men
This is an awesome video created by Grassroot Films and produced by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to encourage vocations to the priesthood. If you've thought about being a priest, or you know someone who is thinking about it, or if you just want to know a little about what it means to be a Catholic priest, this is an excellent video to watch. It's part of an overall program as listed on the USCCB website here: http://www.usccb.org/vocations/index.shtml
