Pope Francis welcomed to Assisi with interpretive dance and poem


Pope Francis' trip to Assisi was marked by musical performances to welcome him to the first edition of the Economy of Francesco in person.

A group of young people performed an interpretive dance to the sounds of violin and accompanied by the reading of a poem inspired by the Bible verse Isaiah 21:11, Shomèr ma mi-llailah?

Different young people spoke parts of the poem in different languages calling to mind the prophet's question, Watchman, how much longer is the night?
