Cardinal Timothy Dolan accepts an honorary degree from Rev

Commencement principal speaker Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, accepts an honorary doctor of laws degree from Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. at the 2013 Commencement ceremony in Notre Dame Stadium.

Dolan urged graduates to consider their experiences in a fuller light: “Here our goal is not just a career, but a call; not just a degree, but discipleship; not just what we’ve gotten, but what we’re giving; not just the now, but eternity; not just the ‘I,’ but the ‘we’; not just the grades, but the gospel."
