Official anthem for Pope's trip to Mexico released

.- The bishops' conference of Mexico has released the official anthem for Pope Benedict XVIs upcoming March 23-25 visit to the country.

In a March 11 message, organizers voiced hope that the song “will be a point of reference to unite the bonds of cordiality, solidarity and fraternity between families, neighbors and peoples.”

Titled “Mensajero de Paz” (Messenger of Peace), the song features the voices of several popular Mexican singers who wished to join the Mexican people in warmly welcoming Pope Benedict XVI.

The song was composed by Carlos Lara, with vocals by Mijares, Alexander Acha, Sheyla, Danna Paola, Magaby, Miguel Angel, Hiroshi from the group Pequenos Gigantes, Filippa Giordano and Prey.

The Mexican bishops' conference said the anthem's lyrics aim to inspire people to open their hearts to “peace, faith and hope.”
