Speaker Boehner addresses Catholic University graduates, tears up
Speaker John Boehner delivered the commencement address at Catholic University Saturday morning.
ABC News' Arlette Saenz reports that Boehner teared up as he called on the graduates to embody three virtues.
"Humility, patience and faith, and always a few tears from me," Boehner said.
Boehner also shed some tears when he recalled a phone call from his former high school football coach, Gerry Faust, the former Notre Dame coach. He said he had prayed for guidance from the Virgin Mary.
"It was old Coach Faust," Boehner said choking up, "calling to wish me luck, and telling me you can do it. You know I've never gotten a call from the Blessed Mother before and I don't think I ever will, but I got to tell you it was pretty darn close."
