Remarkable Words for a University Graduation

This is an actual video recording from the opening remarks by the Chaplain of Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. These remarks were made during the graduation ceremonies, given seven times this year for a total graduating class of approximately 4,900 students. The Chaplain uses the words of ‘Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of the founder of the Baha'i Faith--who had visited Montreal in August 1912--in her description of the beauty of diversity in these young graduates and of their hopes and dreams for a peaceful future.

  1. The simple & beautiful words of Abdul-Baha contain so much that the world so disparately needs.

  2. Thanks for sharing this.
    There's a typo -"Chaplain" instead of "Chaplin"

  3. Not to be too pedantic, but if the person is named "Chaplin" perhaps that is the correct spelling, but if it is the religious leader or clergy member from the school (e.g., pastor, minister, priest), then the spelling was correct as "Chaplain."
