) The island of Cuba is getting ready to welcome the Pope
in more ways than one. The island recently released at least two official songs
, that will be sung by locals when the Pope celebrates Mass on the island.
One of the songs, translates to “Welcome, Holy Father.”
It has a more classical tone, and its lyrics include, 'come with us and share on our table our bread and wine.'
The other song, which is more upbeat is titled “Pilgrim of Charity,”
which precisely honors Our Lady of Charity, the patroness of Cuba. That song includes lyrics like, “Our Lady, here you have your throne and your home. Cuba is your beloved land that constantly blesses you.”
The Pope will arrive to the island of Cuba on March 26th.
