Los del Río say that Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a fan of them and that she slipped into his meeting with John Paul II

Those from the river have had a relaxed conversation with their friend Fran Rivera for the program Public mirror. The musical duo has shared with the bullfighter some of the best anecdotes of their professional career with the appearance of colorful characters such as Chiquito de la calzada, Lola Flores, Rocío Jurado, Rocío Dúrcal, Juan Pablo II or Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

The two friends have told a funny anecdote when They were invited by Pope John Paul II to do a charity event in the Vatican auditorium. Antonio Romero wrote a Sevillian in honor of the pontiff on the occasion of his visit to El Rocío that said: “The pope on the balcony of the hermitage of El Rocío, in the hermitage of El Rocío, the pope on the balcony of the El Rocío hermitage, it felt like marsh and rockrose, rosemary and lily were felt. What will divine Rocío have. What will divine Rocío have, that even the pope asked about things along the way “.

The duo sang this song to the pope live, which made the meeting a day to remember. However, the surprises did not stop there and it seems that another important figure in the world of the Catholic Church appeared, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Los del Río have said that the nun sneaked into the reception of the Andalusian artists to enjoy their show and that when she was discovered she wanted to leave.

“She came so humble, so modest that when she saw us she stayed … And we went behind her because she was going,” Rafael Ruiz Perdigones has detailed. Antonio has explained that the nun she snuck into the reception and was embarrassed to be seen there. “He felt that he had bothered …”, commented Fran Rivera Asombrado. “It seemed that he had screwed up a bit because he had sneaked into the Andalusian reception,” explained the youngest of the musical duo.
