"At this Grotto, there’s a touch of the transcendent. There’s a whisper of the sacred that reminds us that we’re just not minds and bodies, we’re hearts and immortal souls.
For at her best, this university has the heart of Mary. Meaning this university is us, Jesus and His church, and clings to them both with love, and loyalty and service.
Here at Notre Dame, we want to be not just another Harvard or Oxford, but a Bethlehem, a Nazareth, a Calvary, a Cana. 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.”
-Cardinal Timothy Dolan, 2013 University of Notre Dame commencement speech
