This year, the One Heart, One Spirit concert in Rzeszow brought together over 25,000 people from across Poland and other European countries on the feast of Corpus Christi.

As the organisers stress, “the concert is a form of prayer, and Christ is the most important. It gathers so many people to worship together on-site and through television, radio, and Internet broadcasts.”

Broadcasts and media coverage of the event reached millions of people in Poland and around the world.

The One Heart, One Spirit orchestra and choir accompanied the concert performers, including nearly 200 choristers and soloists, as well as instrumentalists and volunteers.

Participants of the concert enjoyed 26 songs and religious pieces for three hours.

Fr Andrzej Cypry?, one of the organisers of the concert, Marcin Pospieszalski, music director, and Jan Budziaszek, the MC, welcomed all gathered for the 22nd edition of the “One Heart, One Spirit” concert.

Bishop Jan Watroba, of the Diocese of Rzeszów, gave his blessing at the end.

Worship concerts on the day of Corpus Christi are becoming more and more popular in Poland, both in large cities and small towns.

They also impact the media, with many people posting reports of the concert on social media. Many attendees are young people and young couples.--Vatican News
