Papal audience with child choristers

Catholic World News - December 30, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI met in a private audience on December 31 with 5,000 young singers sponsored by the International Pueri Cantores Federation, who were in Rome for Christmas performances.

In greetings that he delivered in 8 different languages, the Holy Father told the young singers that “your singing is a service.” When they sing at liturgical ceremonies, he said, they offer service to God first, then to their fellow worshippers. And whenever they perform, the Pope said, the music “is able to express something of the mystery of God’s love for us and ours for Him.”
