George Weigel's Commencement Address Published at National Review Online

 

St. John Paul II biographer George Weigel charged the Class of 2014 to take up the task of cultural renewal at the university's 55th annual Commencement ceremony May 18. 

"If the generation of which this Class of 2014 is a part is going to meet the challenge of giving America, and the West, a new birth of freedom, it will do so because it becomes a generation of saints: well-educated, thoughtful, and articulate saints; compassionate and merciful saints; saints for the new millennium who refuse to surrender to the tyranny of low expectations, personal and public," said Weigel, who also serves as a distinguished senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, where he holds the William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies.
