Pope Francis recently announced his debut album Wake Up! and shared “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!”. Today, His Holiness has dropped “¿Por qué sufren los ninos?” (“Why do children suffer?”) from the album. Watch the lyric video for the song below, via Telemundo.
“¿Por qué sufren los ninos?” features an excerpt of a speech he gave at St. Thomas University in the Philippines. It also includes a Latin hymn, “Jesu Dulcis Memoria”, performed by Italian artist Anna Tosato. He is backed on the track by acoustic guitar and choir.
Wake Up! is out November 27, and part of the proceeds from sales will go to a support fund for refugees.
