News.va reports on Pope Francis’s homily for Baptism of the Lord, at which he baptized 32 children:

“Today the choir sings,” he said, “but the most beautiful choir is [the choir] of children” making noise. He continued, “Some are crying, because they are uncomfortable, or because they are hungry. If they are hungry, mothers, give them something to eat… they are the central figures…”

Choir directors and liturgists and celebrants out there, do you all agree that crying children are the most beautiful choir??
