Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny waves to students from the dais at Boston College, from which he received an honorary degree during commencement ceremonies at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, Mass., on Monday, May 20, 2013. Cardinal Sean O'Malley, who as archbishop of Boston traditionally would have given the benediction at the ceremony, skipped the event because of the involvement of Mr. Kenny, who supports a bill in his country that would allow abortion.
