Rock band stands up for persecuted Christians in Iraq

2015-07-03

The Sun is a well-known Italian rock band that has just released their latest album, "Cuore Aperto.” The title translates to "Open Heart.” One of the standout tracks is called "Homes of Mosul.” It's a song about religious liberty and a call to not forget persecuted Christians.

"I live but hell is all around me, a massacre happens in the name of some God” is one of the most powerful lyrics in the song. It's a line about pain and solitude. The music video depicts a child running from bombs and violence, a situation that thousands of Christians are faced with today.

It's not The Sun's first big Catholic gig. In February 2013, they were the first rock band to open the plenary session of the Pontifical Council for Culture. Their performance included a farewell for the soon-to-retire Pope Benedict XVI.
