LMU Reminds Community of Kwanzaa, but not the Feast of the Immaculate Conception


On December 7th, Marketing and Communications sent out an email to the LMU community inviting them to celebrate Kwanzaa the next day, but did not post a similar advertisement to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of Mary the next day. You might think that an institution named Loyola Marymount might have a particular interest in promoting a celebration of the woman called by Wordsworth ‘our tainted nature’s solitary boast.’ You might think that President Snyder would send a special invitation to attend Mass, but his email communications are more often about his own political opinions which he feels compelled to share with the entire community, inevitably highlighting his woke bona fides. Maybe next year the LMU community will get an email reminding them to celebrate the great mother of God Mary most holy.  Or maybe status quo LMU will continue.

  1. Someone missed a great opportunity to help others discover and develop a relationship with God. Is it President Snyder’s life goal to share the Good News? Perhaps, heading a Jesuit institution of higher learning, he should be sensitive to the most important purpose of the Jesuits. Perhaps he should recall AMDG. But the Jesuits, themselves, seem to have a crisis at their feet. Who better to insist that the Salvation of humanity depends on defending and spreading the Good News? The full motto attributed to St. Ignatius is “Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam Inque Hominum Salutem!” The Society of Jesus needs to step up and assert themselves with the determination and dedication of the Jesuit martyrs of history. People have access to Secularism. They need access to our Lord.
