According to Rolling Stone, “The Vatican-approved LP … features the Pontiff delivering sacred hymns and excerpts of his most moving speeches in multiple languages paired with uplifting musical accompaniment ranging from pop-rock to Gregorian chant.” The Pope’s songs will focus on themes that Americans are getting familiar with this week: “peace, dignity, environmental concerns and helping those most in need.
