Chestnut Hill College
The history of this College is a living, breathing, changing dynamic filled with the mystery, magic, and majesty of the human lives that create its particular reality at any given period. When you see Chestnut Hill College you will be impressed by magnificent buildings and exquisite grounds, the beauty of historic architecture, the splendor of sloping hills, and fragrant flowering trees and plants. What is more important, however, and what pictures cannot adequately convey is the warmth, intelligence, and humor of the people who populate the campus. It is they who will make your time here most memorable. Enduring relationships of great value are a hallmark of a Chestnut Hill College education.

Pope Francis' Remarks at Independence Hall

The following is the English translation of Pope Francis’ remarks at Independence Hall on Saturday afternoon. His homily was prepared for delivery and released by the Vatican:

Dear Friends,

One of the highlights of my visit is to stand here, before Independence Mall, the birthplace of the United States of America. It was here that the freedoms which define this country were first proclaimed. The Declaration of Independence stated that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, and that governments exist to protect and defend those rights. Those ringing words continue to inspire us today, even as they have inspired peoples throughout the world to fight for the freedom to live in accordance with their dignity.

The World Meeting Families and the Papal Visit took place last week in Philadelphia and we here at the Global Philadelphia Association would like to congratulate all the organizers who worked so hard to make the world’s largest Catholic gathering of families a success.
