Silent Night, Holy Night

Commentary By Clarisel Gonzalez "Silent Night" is a song that even till this day reminds me of Pope John Paul II. That's because one of the most beautiful memories I have of the Pope of Young People was his visit to New York City's Central Park in 1995. He said, in his homily: "I remember a song I used to sing in Poland as a young man, a song which I still sing as Pope, which tells about the birth of the Savior. On Christmas night, in every church and chapel, this song would ring out, repeating in a musical way the story told in the Gospel. It says: "Wśród nocnej ciszy głos się rozchodzi: 'Wstańcie pasterze, Bóg się wam rodzi! Czem prędzej się wybierajcie, do Betlejem pospieszajcie przywitać Pana'". [And, the Pope also sang it] "In the silence of the night, a voice is heard: 'Get up, shepherds, God is born for you! Hurry to Bethlehem to meet the Lord'". The same story is told in the beautiful hymn, "Silent Night",
