ADDRESS OF THE HOLY FATHER PAUL VI
TO THE NEWARK BOYS CHORUS
Saturday, 23 June 1973
It is a great pleasure for us to receive the Newark Boys Chorus, to welcome you to the Vatican and to tell you how happy we are with your visit.
We are looking forward to this evening and to your participation in the musical program that will take place in the Audience Hall.
You are young, and yet what a great and wonderful contribution you can make to the world by your singing. You can actually help your fellowmen to lift up their hearts to spiritual values, and to come into closer contact with the beauty of God’s creation.
We wish you success in your singing and success in your entire lives. We hope that your spirit of generosity will continue, that your enthusiasm and love will grow, and that the guiding principles of your lives will unite you ever more closely in true brotherhood under God our Father.
