Performing for the pope in Cyprus

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Dozens and dozens of children — and a few adults — performed for Pope Benedict XVI this morning at St. Maron Catholic School in Nicosia.

There was some quarreling and some crying backstage before the performance, after all the little ones had been waiting in the hot sun for more than an hour.

But the performance went off without a hitch. The pope seemed to enjoy it. The kids were bursting with pride. And parents distributed lots of hugs.

Maronite Archbishop Youssef Soueif of Cyprus said the theme of the performance was the four seasons and that the various songs and dances were drawn from Cypriot heritage, Latin culture and traditional life in the Maronite villages.
