Student at a Catholic School wonders

This editorial comes from St. Mary's College in California, where a student wonders: Are we Catholic? Sounds like a good question for each one of us to ask ourselves.

The student holds nothing back: "the late Pope John Paul II, who stated: "Catholic teaching and discipline are to influence all university activities, while the freedom of conscience of each person is to be fully respected. Any official action or commitment of the University is to be in accord with its Catholic identity." Does Saint Mary's uphold this creed? I answer that question simply and sadly: no."

Another good question: Do I love the Church?

As a sister university to my own...I'm going to VERY interested as to how the St Mary's of CA people respond to this.
