Pope praises Chopin
CWN - March 03, 2010
At the conclusion of his regular weekly public audience on March 3, Pope Benedict took time to greet visitors from Sophia University in Japan and participants in a Vatican conference on pastoral care for gypsies.
Then, speaking in Polish, the Holy Father took note of the bicentenary of the birth of Frederic Chopin. "May the music of this famous Polish composer, who made such a great contribution to the culture of Europe and the world, bring those who listen to him close to God and help them discover the depth of man's spirit," he said.
