In your philosophy classes, while attending the University, you considered the subject of time. It was an academic matter — not of the practical realm. Yet, time adds to the definition of man — a finite being. It is the same time which gives us a notion of our God — an infinite Being.
Time, we accept without thought. We use it, we waste it. we lose it, we save it, and it is irrevocable — it proceeds either with or without our assent.
We measure accomplishment, many times, with a parallel to time.
Four years ago, you came to us with minds bridging the last flights of adolescence and the first purposes of manhood. Looking back, each of you can behold the changes wrought by four years of university life.
Your talents have developed. Your dreams now have direction. In a word, you have grown and yours is a spiritual, physical, mental, moral, social development.
Have you paused to consider how, too, your University has grown during the past four years?
Do you recall that Fall of 1950 when you began your studies at the University? There was a new building on the campus which, at first, you scarcely noticed. After all, buildings are supposed to be on a university campus. It was passively accepted by you but a real achievement for those who preceded you. In December of that year it was dedicated — the Richard A. Gleeson Library. During your days at the University you have seen its treasures grow — ever to serve you and those to come.
Now in your last year at the University — a scant four years later — you have seen another building taking form — the Student Residence Building. Your Alma Mater, too, has grown. We speak merely of physical growth. Unspoken now is the growth unseen for such physical expansion required academic recognition, strong Alumni, loyal friends, and generous benefactors.
What of the future? You will grow and enter professions and establish yourselves in the community. You will grow and give credence to the solid foundation laid in but four years of time. Your University, likewise, will grow. It, too, rests upon a solid foundation.
The years will pass quickly and your sons will enter the University. You, with just pride, will point out the changes since last you walked the campus. You will say, “the Residence Building was being completed when I graduated in ’54”, “there was nothing on the slope where the Gymnasium now stands”, “the huts used to be there, but that’s the Science Building now”, and so you go on.
The time given us will have been used well with, we anticipate, your help as an Alumnus of the University of San Francisco. And, what of your time? In the years before you, Build — build well, build strong — and Grow.
God bless you all.

Hurrying down Tepcyac hill lo ollcnd Man on Saturday morning, Juan Diego was stayed with wonder and surprise when the Blessed Virgin appeared to him. This was on a December morning in 1531. The heaven-sent visitor osked the faith-filled Juan to request his bishop to build a chapel in her honor on the spot where she stood. Juan fulfilled his mission but the wise bishop demanded a sign. Never leaving anyone unaided, Mary gave the sign: roses bloomed whore none had grown before, and a miraculous picture of herself on the fabric of Juan's threadbare cloak. The shrine built in her honor ond enriched with miracles, has been the goal of pilgrims for four full centuries.
Following the declaration of Benedict XIV that
of Mexico, the faithful of that nation hove fled to her protection in limes of peril and of persecution. To them, as to all others who seek her
