"We went to Jerusalem, to Nazareth, then we when to Bethlehem and all over Israel. Finally we decided to come to Rome to see Pope Francis in the heart of St. Peter's.” 

They wore white hats and shirts with the word "Shalom” or peace. It's a message that they want to highlight, especially after their visit to the Holy Land. 

They decided to send that message with a little rhythm and by singing a song for Pope Francis.

"Coming to a weekly general audience, gives us the opportunity to live the Universal presence of the Catholic Church. You see people from all over the world. When it comes down to it, there is one Church and the Body of Christ is here.” 

So after traveling from one country to another, they say they're ready to head back to Rio. They cherry on top, they say, was getting to see Pope Francis in the heart of the Church.
