(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at the San Francisco State graduation on Wednesday that the anthem of San Francisco is St. Francis’s song: “Lord, make me a channel of thy peace.”
“Joyous graduates, distinguished trustees, eminent faculty, honored alumni, let us join and together applaud the parents, spouses and partners, families and friends, siblings and supporters sharing in this celebration, whose love, support and encouragement have made today possible,” Pelosi said in her commencement address. “Let us thank the families who have made this possible!
“How happy I am to be with you, in this beautiful stadium of our home team, the San Francisco Giants and we thank them for their hospitality!” she said.
“And what a joy it is to be at home in the city of Saint Francis, whose song is our anthem: ‘Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,’” Pelosi said.
“It is a privilege for all of us to share this day with the distinguished awardees, who have dedicated their lives to bringing hope where there is despair, light where there is darkness and joy where there is sadness,” she said.
