“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Report: Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins in Route to White House for Private Meeting with President Obama

Isn't this an interesting report? Phil Lawler reports that a reliable source says that Fr. Jenkins is in route to Washington D.C. to meet privately with President Obama. Why would he be doing this? You don't rescind an invitation to the Leader of the Free World over the phone:

"Today we received a report from a reliable source, and although we haven't been able to confirm the report, it's so important that I want to pass it along. The report is:Father John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame, is in Washington today for an unannounced meeting at the White House."

Lawler's son confirmed that there was a flight from South Bend to Dulles that arrived late morning, which gives this story additional credence.

Couldn't this get really interesting?

4/22 Postscript: A University Spokesman is denying the meeting.
