CCI Editor’s Note: The Florida News Press today published a series of articles discussing the new Ave Maria University in Florida, extensively discussing founder Father Fessio’s and Tom Monaghan’s backgrounds, their plans, and including the usual sniping from their critics. Given the pent up demand for authentic Catholic education in this country, and the generally beautiful climate of Florida year round, it is highly likely that Ave Maria University will succeed beyond even the wildest expectations of orthodox Catholics. The school is scheduled to open this Fall, and all CCI readers are encouraged to support AMU as much as they can. The News Press of Florida and independent writer Joan Laguardia, deserve credit for bringing the story to the public. For info on AMU, see www.avemaria.edu.
