Given the rich Notre Dame lineage, it’s fitting that so many people have made the pilgrimage to campus to attend memorials honoring University President Emeritus Fr. Theodore Hesburgh.“As an ND family for three generations, he’s been our local pope,” Rich Cronin, class of 1976, said. “When the pope passes, you go to the Vatican.”Cronin traveled from Los Angeles, and his sister, Cindy Cahill, class of 1980, came from the Chicago area to pay respects to Hesburgh. Cahill served as the first woman president of the Notre Dame Club of Chicago.“I came out because I love Fr. Hesburgh,” she said. “… I met him many times — had dinner with him.”Cronin and Cahill watched the funeral Mass in the packed main lounge of LaFortune Student Center, along with many other alumni and students.Visitors joined the campus community at various other locations around campus to watch a live stream of the Mass, and many students watched the service together in their dorms before heading out to line the procession’s path.Outside the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, a group braved the cold to listen to audio of the service and receive Holy Communion, and some people left their viewing areas to stand outside the Basilica for the Eucharist.The funeral Mass was by invitation only.“[The funeral] was really nice … very somber, but very nice. An honor to be there.” Eric Woitchek, junior and Dillion hall president, said.Traveling alumni joined the campus community in celebrating Hesburgh’s legacy as they lined the path around Saint Mary’s Lake from the Basilica to Holy Cross Community Cemetery. Some followed the procession to the cemetery.“It showed those that went to the funeral — family, friends and members of the Holy Cross congregation — that we are one big community and are all together in times of hardship,” O’Neill Hall sophomore Alexander Preudhomme said on attending the funeral procession.As mourners gathered, many shared personal memories of meeting Hesburgh.“My RA used to read to him every Tuesday,” freshman Margaret Crawford said. “She’s been doing that since she was a freshman, so she took our section to go meet him first semester. He was really impressive, kind of intimidating just because he’s such a big Notre Dame figure.“But he was just a really cute old man. And he told us all these amazing stories about incredible things that he’s done in his lifetime.”Maura Poston Zagrans met Hesburgh while working on the book “Camerado, I Give You My Hand” about Fr. David Link, a professor emeritus and dean emeritus of the Notre Dame Law School. She recalled that Hesburgh was always gracious and accommodating during her visits and work on the book.Zagrans’ husband and daughter attended the University, she said.“My husband came to Notre Dame because of Fr. Hesburgh and the work that he did for civil rights,” Zagrans said. “He could have gone anywhere in the country. This place owes a lot to Fr. Hesburgh.”Many remembered Hesburgh exactly as he often said he wanted to be remembered — as a priest.“Fr. Ted was a man for the ages,” Zagrans said. “He was truly a great man. And I think he was a quintessential priest. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but here.”Tags: Father Hesburgh, Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, Funeral Mass, Procession, Ted Hesburgh

Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.) introduced a credit union governance modernization bill Tuesday, the result of direct engagement between the legislators, CUNA and the Carolinas Credit Union League. This is the second similar bill released this week, as CUNA and the Leagues seek modernizations of the Federal Credit Union Act that would allow credit unions to better serve members, families and communities.“By helping to bring credit union governance into the 21st century, Sens. Burr and Tillis are strengthening consumers’ access to Main Street financial partners that are dedicated to empowering their financial well-being,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.Specifically, the Credit Union Fairness Act (S. 3326) would remove outdated duties for credit union boards and remove the requirement for credit unions to provide NCUA with the names of its loan officers from the Federal Credit Union Act.
Kuldeep Yadav took 4/39 and 4/45 in the first two ODIs.India on the cusp of winning a series in New Zealand after 10 years.Kuldeep has already taken five four-wicket hauls. highlights New Delhi: Kuldeep Yadav has shown that he is a vital asset to Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team as they build momentum for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. They have already made big strides, registering a bilateral ODI series win in Australia for the first time while in the series against New Zealand, they are on the cusp of a series win for the first time in 10 years. In the first two games, India has put in a clinical performance with both bat and ball. With the bat, Shikhar Dhawan has been the star. Among the bowlers, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav have been sensational. The efforts of Kuldeep, though, are worth mentioning as his chinaman has flummoxed New Zealand in both Napier and Bay Oval ODIs.After picking up 4/39 in the Napier ODI, Kuldeep ended with figures of 4/45 in 10 overs as India won by 90 runs. After Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Kedar Jadhav and Yuzvendra Chahal chipped in with wickets at vital times, it was the turn of Kuldeep to once again run through the lower-middle order. The left-armer trapped Tom Latham LBW for 28 with a flighted delivery. Henry Nicholls slogged a flighted delivery to be out caught for 34 while Colin de Grandhomme miscued the slog sweep to be caught at deep midwicket for 3 by Ambati Rayudu. Ish Sodhi was bowled round his legs first ball and he narrowly missed the hat-trick. Although he was carted around the park by Doug Bracewell, he still finished with superb bowling figures. Kuldeep’s two consecutive four wicket hauls made him the first spinner to take two consecutive four-wicket hauls in ODIs in New Zealand. This has also taken his tally of four-wicket hauls to five in just 37 ODIs, level with Harbhajan Singh who achieved it in 234 matches. Anil Kumble heads the list with 12 four-wicket hauls from 269 ODIs. Kuldeep is one of the three Indian bowlers to take a hat-trick in ODIs after Chetan Sharma and Kapil Dev, having achieved the feat against Australia in 2017 in Kolkata.The 90-run win was India’s biggest in terms of runs in ODIs in New Zealand, having won by 84 runs in the Hamilton ODI in 2009. A win on Monday at the same venue will give India a series win in New Zealand after 10 years. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
GO UP AND GET IT 🙌#NationalChampionship pic.twitter.com/14oqz7Bu2G— ESPN (@espn) January 14, 2020There’s just no way he’ll be able to run an offense with baby hands like those.Joe Burrow has thrown 7 TD passes, tied for the most ever in a bowl game. … It’s halftime. #CFBPlayoff pic.twitter.com/AZcs1lbHSD— ESPN (@espn) December 28, 2019And he won’t be able to avoid pressure when he’s constantly dropping the ball.It got called back, but this was an unreal first play from Joe Burrow 🤭 pic.twitter.com/jcBukmbilW— ESPN (@espn) January 14, 2020Oh wait, he’ll probably be just fine and be a longtime starting quarterback for many years. After all, size isn’t everything. Well, it was a great run, but it looks like Heisman-winner and No. 1-pick-to-be Joe Burrow might call it quits following the release of his hand measurements at the 2020 NFL Combine on Monday.Following the results and some criticism, Burrow joked about an early retirement. Considering retirement after I was informed the football will be slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts.— Joey Burrow (@Joe_Burrow10) February 24, 2020MORE: No, Joe Burrow’s hand size won’t keep him away from Bengals in 2020 NFL DraftWe’ve got to “hand” it to him — Burrow really handled this devastating news as well as anyone possibly could.In all seriousness, Burrow’s hands may be tied for the smallest of any first-round quarterback since 2008, but it’s clear that he’s still one of the best quarterback prospects of the last decade.It really is a shame that Burrow’s hands are only 9 inches wide, he won’t be able to make throws like this.
