THE ANTHONY NICHOLAS BRADY MEMORIAL

BY JAMES CARDINAL GIBBONS

The occasion that brings us together in this sanctuary is of far wider import than the addition of another building to the group which forms the nucleus of the Catholic Sisters College. As the ceremony we have just performed implies, it is not merely the opening of a new hall that gives this day its significance, but the dedication to God's service of this offering made by generous hearts; not simply the enlargement of our facilities for collegiate work, but the public evidence that our work, as it grows, is to grow in the furtherance of Christian education and to become the chief factor in imbuing the minds of our children with the teaching and spirit of our holy religion. This is why we have invoked the blessing of Almighty God, not alone upon this chapel, but upon the whole structure and each of its parts; why we have used, not merely a form of words expressive of our human purpose, but the words inspired by the Holy Ghost and the prayers appointed by the Church. In the fullest sense of the term, this hall is henceforth a sacred place—the home of religious, whose lives are already consecrated to the Master's service and whose steadfast endeavor is to render that service in every way more worthy of Him.
