Babes in Sugarland...

... sing Latin

Students in kindergarten through second grade at St. Theresa Catholic School in Sugarland, Texas talk about the importance of Latin and chant in the liturgy. According to the kids, Latin is easy and that people should not be afraid to learn it. The kids sing beautifully in this video, and in their unscripted words show their appreciation of singing Latin. "We're trying to get more Latin in," says one young supporter of Latin. 

Pope Benedict, in his May 2011 Letter on the 100th Anniversary of the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music, reminds the faithful of the aim of sacred music: "the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful." It looks like the Pope has some really young helpers in Sugarland.
