Pope's gift helps restore basilica of St. Augustine near Hippo
CWN - February 14, 2012
Pope Benedict XVI has made a personal contribution to the restoration of a church in Algeria dedicated to St. Augustine, near the ruins of the city of Hippo, where the Father of the Church served as Bishop.
Pope Benedict, who has shown a scholar’s devotion to the works of St. Augustine, added his own personal donation to a gift from the papal foundation for the restoration of the basilica of St. Augustine in Annaba.
