‘Keep Moving Forward’

Catholic University Takes Up the Challenge

On September 23 Pope Francis offered us a challenge at the conclusion of his homily: “Forward, Let’s keep moving forward!” Catholic University is taking up this challenge. We are studying the Holy Father’s teachings on the family, a human ecology, and a humane economy in the classroom. And we are putting those teachings into practice in the world. The Holy Father has challenged us to recommit ourselves to our founding mission. I hope you will join us.

> John Garvey reflects on the visit of Pope Francis

“Father Serra had a motto which inspired his life and work …  ¡siempre adelante! Keep moving forward! …  He kept moving forward, because the Lord was waiting. He kept going, because his brothers and sisters were waiting. He kept going forward to the end of his life. Today, like him, may we be able to say: Forward! Let’s keep moving forward!”
                                                             – Pope Francis
