Probably by now we have all heard about the tragic death of Declan Sullivan at Notre Dame a couple weeks ago. We here at Catholics on Call share in the grief of the Sullivan and Notre Dame families, and we invite everyone to pray for healing. The night after Declan's death a Mass was celebrated at Sacred Heart Basilica and the crowd was so huge that it flowed across the campus into the student center. The following is reflection by a student who did not even know Declan but who found herself caught up in the mystery of what was happening.

On May 14, 2009, the Honorable Marcy Kaptur of Ohio introduced a resolution into the US House of Representatives honoring the historic contributions of Catholic women religious. The resolution "honors and commends Catholic sisters for their humble service and courageous sacrifice throughout the history of this nation; and supports the goals of the Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America Traveling Exhibit, a project sponsored by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) in association with Cincinnati Museum Center and established to recognize the historical contributions of Catholic sisters in the United States."

Next week Pope Benedict XVI will make his first official visit to the United States. He will gather with bishops and other Catholics in Washington, where he will also meet with President Bush. Then he will travel to New York City, where he will address the United Nations and a number of other groups. He will celebrate the Eucharist at the new stadium of the Washington Nationals as well as in storied Yankee Stadium. It will be a very full and swift few days for Benedict and for all who follow his visit.
