"His legacy will never be forgotten. That's for sure," said Batiste.
Mandela's name is already inscribed in history text books, and Xavier University President Dr. Norman Francis says, the lessons Mandela provided will always be cherished.
"When he made changes, his changes were based on treating each other as human beings. I still am amazed about it. I don't think if you would imprison me for a year I'd come out and say, 'okay lets see how nice I can be to you.' That's almost inhuman," said Francis.
Francis says Mandela's personal and political charisma touches leaders across the world.
"I think surely he had a great impact on South Africa, but he had a great impact on the United States and what we were going through and are still going through in terms of understanding that together we can do much, but separately we can do nothing," said Francis.
Now together, admirers pray and remember the extraordinary life of a man who remains a hero and friend to so many.
"I'm sure there's many people crying right now, even though it's eight hours ahead of us in South Africa because my mother called me. It's like a 9/11 moment. Where were you when you found out Nelson Mandela passed away?" said Batiste.
