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 idea grew slowly. The first step was that we had met Mrs. Lorenz, who is also Swiss, and the idea surfaced to do this project together. Since Christmas time is close by, we chose these songs.”

"We are Swiss and we understand each other, that helps. For them, it was a great effort. They are not professionals and they are not musicians, they work here. They had to do their duties and then rehearse. It was a lot of work, but they did it very well.”

The album has 18 Christmas songs, including Swiss, Latin American and Italian carols, giving the Vatican's Christmas an international touch.

This is the Swiss Guard's first recording album in its 500 year history. Their goal is to have listeners experience Christmas as close to the Pope as they do.
