Sandro Magister today draws attention to an article in 30 days in which Card. Georges Cottier, O.P., former theologian of the papal household (Magister Sacri Palatiia great title!), comments on the speeches given at the Notre Dame commencement, particularly that of President Obama. Magister (not of the sacred palace) says that the journal has close ties with the Vatican, and implies, it seems that Cottiers piece must have been vetted on high.

Rev. Joseph A. Komonchak, professor emeritus of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America, is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of New York.
