This is so moving!

Australian Cardinal George Pell passed away on Jan. 10 in Rome, Italy at age 81. His death prompted tributes to the late cardinal on social media.

Instagram user Jacob Stein published a video of Cardinal Pell singing ‘Stille Nacht’ (Silent Night) with seminarians, religious sisters, priests, and laity at the Vatican.

“Cardinal Pell requested we sing Silent…so we all sang it in English,” Stein writes in his Instagram reel.

The late cardinal then requests the group sing in German.

“You can hear the cardinal in the background with the timbre of his baritone voice,” Stein adds.
