Diocese of Bamberg celebrates 1000th anniversary, honors Pope with concert

.- Yesterday evening, Pope Benedict XVI was treated to a concert performed by the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for celebrations marking the 1000th anniversary of the archdiocese of Bamberg, Germany.

In remarks made at the end of the concert, the Pope indicated that music "has the power to lead us back ... to the Creator of all harmony, creating a resonance within us which is like being in tune with the beauty and truth of God, with the reality which no human knowledge or philosophy can ever express."

After thanking the conductor and the members of orchestra, as well as the organizers and promoters of the event, the Holy Father described the concert as "a gift which I interpret as being the sign of a special bond of affection between the archdiocese of Bamberg and Peter's Successor."

Pope Benedict XVI left them with the blessing, "May your jubilee pilgrimage to the tombs of the Apostles and to Peter's current Successor, strengthen your faith and joy in God, that you may become His witnesses in daily life."
