What language is this?
« on: January 08, 2012, 10:18:27 PM »

Is this Italian or Romanian?

Also, for those of you who understand it, what on earth is it about?  The background music makes me want to cry, but the facial expressions of the singers don't.

Thanks!   :)

“To the church minded, I’m too leftist and to the leftists, I’m too church minded….notions of political labels, religious labels, etc. must be placed secondary so as to not lose human contact. Red or white, my position is the same-I will act for justice and relieve suffering.” - Saint Maria Skobtsova of Paris (prisoner number 19263)

That's Italian - Felicita = Happiness, Joy - for the lyrics.

Here it is by the original artist, but this time he sings it in Spanish:

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
