A recent article from the Wall Street Journal started like this:
"He is a person who could easily hold an endowed chair at Notre Dame."
Sitting in a spacious office on the top floor of Notre Dame's gold-domed administration building, the university's president, the Rev. John I. Jenkins, pays Pope Benedict XVI what might be the ultimate compliment around here. In fact, Father Jenkins recounts the story of how in the 1960s his famed predecessor, the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, actually offered such a position to "a young promising theologian" named Joseph Ratzinger, "who graciously declined."
But things are a lot different in 2008. That is evident from the fact that Notre Dame has hosted the V Monologues on campus for the last six years.
For example, today, only half the staff are even Catholic.
