Recordando a Pablo Sosa

Pablo Sosa ha partido a la eternidad este día. Justamente anoche cantábamos en Phoenix, Arizona, su emblemático canto, “El Cielo Canta Alegría” en nuestro festival bilingüe de himnos. ¡Qué se memoria sea eterna!

O Gladsome Light of the holy glory,  of the immortal Father, Heavenly Blessed Jesus Christ…
