Catholic writers analyze significance of Notre Dame's Obama controversy

Notre Dame ignited a firestrom of controversy this spring by inviting President Barack Obama to speak at the university's graduation ceremony and granting him an honorary law degree.

Below are just a few articles from Catholic publications that have been making the rounds on the internet via Twitter. (To check out the text and video of the speech, please click here.)
