When they finished singing, he shared with them a moment they'll never forget

During Wednesday’s general audience, Pope Francis addressed a group of seminarians present saying, “I extend a special welcome to the seminarians of the Pontifical North American College and their families gathered here for the Ordination to the Diaconate to be celebrated tomorrow.” After the audience, the seminarians paid a special tribute to Pope Francis by singing “Ad Multos Annos.”
