A Papal Theologian

Congratulations to Prof. John Cavadini, chair of the theology department at the University of Notre Dame, for being appointed to the International Theological Commission. The commission is comprised of thirty theologians who assist the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the prefect of which chairs the commission.

This appointment is, among other things, a tribute to Prof. Cavadini's vigorous theological work as well as his deep love and concern for the Church's beautiful teachings and counsels.

The confirmation students at St. Matthew's Cathedral in South Bend will have another reason to listen well to their catechist!

Excellent news!! The honor is well deserved. Good to know the Pope is interested in hearing what Professor Cavidini thinks. Is anyone here?

And the honors roll in. First being made a Knight of St. Gregory the Great and now this. I can't think of anybody more deserving.
