ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
TO THE SAINT CHARLES BORROMEO
AND THE SAINT BASIL CHURCH CHOIRS

Friday, 14 June 1985

 

Dear Friends in Christ,

I am pleased to welcome to the Vatican the Saint Charles Borromeo and the Saint Basil Church Choirs. In the joy of Christ I greet you all. Your presence here today reminds me of the words of the psalm: "In the presence of the angels I will sing your praise", for you are from Los Angeles, the City of Our Lady of the Angels, and you come to Rome to sing, to sing the praises of God. How good it is to sing and to rejoice in the love of our Lord! Even better to make our life a song, to create harmony and concord in the world, to live a life that is pleasing in God’s sight. As you refresh the hearts of others through your hymns and songs, may God fill your own hearts with the fullness of his peace.
