Just recently, a 6-yr-old said: “Daddy, why in the English Mass does the priest have his back to Jesus the whole time?”[Ex ore infantium… – Fr. Z]
I wonder if Minnesota will ever have a Mandatum College?
Woo hoo! My school is there! (My grad school, that is!) :-)But as a local professor pointed out to me, said prof. being a very loyal Catholic located at my Alma Mater...the Mandatum does not mean that a school can't still go off the rails, and it does not mean that those that do not have the Mandatum are not faithful. I can't remember exactly what she said as the conversation took place some time ago, but I did see her point. Decisions on what school to attend should NOT just be made on that basis. OK, I'm off to a party now.
I wrote to my Alma Mater - the infamous College of St. Catherine to kindly inform then that I will not send any of my daughters to school there unless they became a Mandatum college and guess what? No reply. Yes, I'm as shocked as everyone else...(yawn)That said, we seriously need some good Catholic colleges and schools in Minnesota! Any idea WHY the University of St. Thomas is NOT on this list?? I'm surprised at this since the seminary is booming and apparantly has such a great rep.
Sanctus: At a minimum, I would bet that the Theology faculty would be highly reluctant to subscribe publicly to the “mandatum oath”, even if they agreed with it because if they had any ambition to teach at another, larger, University, that would surely “blackball” them.
