FREE Catholic Classes
On his last day in Mexico, Pope Francis witnessed a live performance by a rock n' roll band of nuns.
The Servants performed their song, "Trust in God," for the papal visit in Mexico (CEN/Siervas).
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Peruvian band called Siervas or "The Servants," performed their hit "Trust in God," for the Pope and a crowd of over 200,000 spectators.
Their music video was uploaded last year and has since gone viral with over 355,000 views.
They perform in full habits and play instruments such as guitars, a drum set and electric piano.
One of the group's leaders, Sister Monica, told CNN: "We posted our video online only a few months ago and couldn't believe how popular it became. A Mexican priest watched it and messaged us saying, 'Come to Mexico,' so we did."

Sister Cindy, the band's bass player, said: "I went to the Brazil [sic] during the Pope's trip there and got to see him in the popemobile, but never dreamed I would actually get to play for him. Words cannot begin to express how overwhelmed I am."
The Servants also procured gigs in Mexico City, Chihuahua and San Juan del Rio and announced they would be performing charity work in soup kitchens and schools between performances.
"Our faith speaks volumes," Sister Cindy added. "That is what we are hoping to transmit to Pope Francis and to young people around the world."
