Catholic World News - March 23, 2009

Mary Ann Glendon, the Harvard law professor who served as Ambassador to the Holy See during the Bush administration, has been named to receive the Laetare medal from the University of Notre Dame. The award for Glendon, a pro-life activist, was announced on the day after Notre Dame revealed that President Barack Obama would be the school's commencement speaker. Notre Dame's president, Father John Jenkins, said that Glendon "exemplifies our university's most cherished values and deserves its highest praise."
