Pope enjoys an opera based on the life of St. Augustine
It was a gift from the German diocese of Würzburg in northern Bavaria, which is the homeland of Benedict XVI.
The opera tries to follow and reflect the prayers of the saint. The concert was part of an international conference organized by the Augustinian Patristic Institute in Rome.
The Pope thanked the group and highlighted that the teachings of St. Augustine are still relevant today, since they reflect the desire humans have to find God.
