SJU ignoring Rome?

Dear Editor:

Pope Francis has demonstrated a desire for openness and inclusiveness. But this is not exhibited at Queens’ Catholic college, St. John’s University.

Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI wished that tradition, in the form of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, be given to all Catholics. Why is this not done at St. John’s, and why is the university not inclined to do it? Were both popes wrong, or is scoring the three-point shot more important?
