EWTN Catholic Q&A
Pope Benedict's hobbies
Question from Scott on 04-19-2005:

We all know that Pope John Paul liked to ski and to hike among other things. Does Pope Benedict play any instruments or have any other hobbies? It is my understanding he likes listening to Mozart. God Bless.

Answer by David Gregson on 05-02-2005:

Pope Benedict plays the piano, and apparently Mozart is his favorite composer. He likes to take walks and enjoy nature. He also gets along well with cats.
