Mass at the Intercontinental Hotel, Miami
Notre Dame off-the-field news and notes on BCS National Championship Game weekend, culminating Monday night when the Irish take on Alabama at Sun Life Stadium:
• On the Feast of the Epiphany, Notre Dame’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., was the celebrant at a Mass on Sunday morning (Jan. 6) in the Grand Ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Miami. An overflow crowd of approximately 3,500 people attended.
In his homily, Father Jenkins alluded to his days as a professor of philosophy and teaching on “Confessions,” in which St. Augustine wrote of his life’s journey and the earthly success but spiritual emptiness he experienced prior to converting to Christianity.
