Good Evening Bishop Rhoades,

The University of Notre Dame
Priests, Religious, Friends and Benefactors:
Thank you for your presence and a special thank you to our Residents, without whom we would not be here.
It is no secret that we, Little Sisters of the Poor, recently walked down the white marble steps of the Supreme Court of the United States after presenting our case hoping to protect our Religious Freedom and the right to remain faithful to the teachings of the Church, most especially those teachings that uphold the sanctity of human life.
