The best and the worst of Catholic higher education are once again on public display, as America’s Catholic colleges announce their spring commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients. As many Catholic colleges have chosen to honor individuals who publicly oppose the Church’s moral teachings, Patrick Reilly of Cardinal Newman Society tells us this choice risks confusion and scandal—a direct contradiction to the mission of Catholic colleges. It does great harm to the unity of the Church and endangers the souls of the faithful. The Cardinal Newman Society has catalogued the ‘best and worst’ of the commencement season with a look at some of the greatest picks–and ones that might need more discernment. Check out the list HERE
