Musical recital: Witnesses of Jesus in the 20th Century

On 11-12 September, a recital of religious music entitled Witnesses, organized by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, was held in La Paz, Bolivia.

The program, created by Luis Alfredo Diaz and directed by Sergio Murillo, combined music, song, contemporary dance and video. Its focus was ten witnesses to Jesus
Christ in the twentieth century, among them: Teresa of Calcutta, John Paul II, Padre Pio, Cardinal Van Thuan, Josemaría Escrivá, Edith Stein, Josephine Bakhita and Maximilian Kolbe.

The songs were interpreted by the orchestra and chorus of the Southern Charismatic Renewal. The lyrics came from the writings of the witnesses themselves.
