Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

'The Escorial' choir has made history for 445 years

2012-06-02

The Choir was founded in 1567 by King Philip II of Spain. Since then, thousands of children have taken part. Today, the choir has about 50 children. In fact, the group actually sang before the Pope in Madrid, during World Youth Day.

'El Escorial is known for its history and tradition.
But it's also a boarding school, where children get more than musical training.

Choir of 'El Escorial', Singer

"What's great about it, is that we have the opportunity to study regular courses and music.  Also, you get to spend time with your friends, with kids your age, as well as some students who are older or younger.  It's a good time.  And since we have a busy schedule, we don't get bored.”

Choir of El Escorial, Singer

"For me, the best thing,  aside from the chorus, is that we have piano lessons and great teachers. At school, we're required to play the piano and we have great teachers. I'm learning so much, and I  want to continue with this in the future.”

GUSTAVO SÁNCHEZ
Choir of El Escorial, Director

"It's great to see how children grow, you see it during their concert performances. How they grow musically and technically. They fine tune everything and it's really beautiful.”

They are typical children. They listen to music, play video games and joke around with their friends. In the coming months, their musical talent will take them to countries like Germany, France and Panama. The group is also planning on recording a new album.
