To do that, I had to interview hundreds of candidates.
In 2007, McGuire invited the Rev. Robert Drinan, S J to celebrate the 2007 inaugural Mass for Pelosi on the Trinity Washington campus. Fr. Drinan, who died later that year, was an elected member of the House of Representatives from 1970 until 1980. Sharing a similar record of supporting abortion rights as Pelosi and Sebelius, Fr. Drinan provided a much imitated model for Catholic politicians who wished to support the fledgling pro-choice movement in the mid-1960s while claiming to be faithful to Catholic moral teaching. In fact, in a well-documented meeting at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport, Mass in July, 1964, Fr. Drinan joined with other leading theologians and progressive prelates coached the Catholic Kennedy family and its advisors and allies on how Catholic politicians could accept and promote abortion with a “clear conscience.” One of the attendees, the former Jesuit priest, Albert Jonsen, emeritus professor of ethics at the University of Washington, published an account of the meeting in his book “The Birth of Bioethics (Oxford, 2003).
Many of them were woefully poorly prepared for the interview.
Throughout his tenure in Congress, Fr. Drinan could be counted on to provide some of the most extreme pro-choice votes—supporting legalized abortion and its public funding, and opposing pro-life initiatives. Yet, President McGuire honored Fr. Drinan—inviting him to celebrate the well-publicized inaugural Mass for Nancy Pelosi on the Trinity Washington campus.

With a little help from Mother Nature, guests may have the added benefit of seeing the house in a spectacular snow covered setting. Mistress of the house, Mary Harlan Lincoln described one scene this way in a letter written to close friend, Laura Hollister, on December 31, 1915, “You’ve no idea how beautiful it is up here today... everything covered with the whitest, purest snow I ever saw, and this morning in a beautiful filmy white lace, studded with diamonds... Mr. Lincoln said he never in his whole life saw such a beautiful sight.”
