New U.S. Nuncio Makes First Visit to Stateside Catholic College

Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia, was honored by a visit from Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Papal Nuncio to the United States, the College recently announced.  According to the Christendom news release, this marked the nuncio's first visit to a Catholic college. Archbishop Vigano celebrated Mass for the campus community and joined them for brunch afterwards.  Christendom has made the audio of the nuncio's homily available on the College iTunes station. The College reported:
Pope Benedict XVI named Archbishop Viganò to be the nuncio to the United States in October of last year. His previous position was the secretary-general of the commission governing Vatican City. "This morning, it is my particular joy, as a personal representative of his holiness Pope Benedict XVI, to celebrate holy Mass with you, my brothers and sisters of Christendom College," Archbishop Viganò said during his homily. "As you make your spiritual journey towards Easter, take time to thank almighty God for the gift of the present moment—the gift of these days that you spend at Christendom College, where you have been given a unique chance to choose to live by the truth, by embracing the fullness of the light of the Faith," he said. ... "It was a great honor for us to host the official, personal representative of our Holy Father Pope Benedict to the United States," College Chaplain Fr. Donald Planty said. "The Nuncio was impressed with Christendom College—he noted that our Catholic identity is strong, that our academics are properly grounded on faith and reason, that our celebration of the sacred liturgy is most reverent, that our students are enthusiastic and engaging, and that our campus is beautiful. He enjoyed his visit very much and I trust he will be back."
