Greetings to The Texas Boys Choir from Pope Paul VI (October 1972)

These words of welcome from Pope Paul VI were directed to The Texas Boys Choir this summer at the Castelgondolfo summer residence:

"We are happy to welcome The Texas Boys Choir from Fort Worth,

Texas. What a great privilege is yours! Through your singing you create

the peace and beauty of true art. You have undertaken much training and

discipline and you are to be commended for this. We understand that you

are celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Choir's foundation. We

assure you of our prayers that God will bless you in the years to come

with much joy and happiness."
