 Superdome reopens in New Orleans
The stadium that symbolised New Orleans' suffering during Hurricane Katrina last year has re-opened.

More than 30,000 people took refuge at the Louisiana Superdome after the storm struck. They lived in squalor for four days until they were evacuated.

But a major refurbishment programme has allowed the venue to host Monday's sell-out game between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons.

Rock bands, including U2 and Green Day, performed in a star-studded ceremony.

The Superdome was wrecked by Hurricane Katrina last August, its roof peeled off by the wind.

However, the BBC's James Westhead in New Orleans says it was the images of chaos inside, with people stranded for days with no water or food, that made it a symbol of New Orleans' misery.

Many thought that afterwards, the building would be condemned. But instead, 180m was spent on a huge renovation effort.

Although some question spending so much on a sports stadium, the governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, described it as a vital symbol of recovery for the city and the state.

"This is exactly what the city needs," Saints season ticket holder Clara Donate - who lost her home and all her possessions to Katrina - told AP news agency before the game.

"We all need something else to think about."

The Saints last played in the Superdome in a 2005 pre-season game, a few days before Katrina.

The team were forced to move their home games to other venues last season - including Louisiana State University and Giants Stadium in New York.

I am just a lone-ly trav'-ler, Thru this big wide world of sin.
Want to join that grand pro-ces-sion, When the Saints go march-ing in.
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
Lord I want to be in that num-ber, When the Saints go march-ing in.

All my folks have gone before me, All my friends and kin.
But I'll meet with them up yonder, When the Saints go marching in.
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
I will meet them all up in heaven, When Saints go marching in.

Come and join me in my journey, 'cause it's time we begin.
And we'll be there for that judgment, When the Saints go marching in.
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
Oh! When the Saints go march-ing in,
We will be in line for that judgment, When the Saints go marching in.

At those moments when the word God ceases to be simply a word and becomes an underground hot-spring erupting a geyser of light, love, beauty, and life from the heart to everlasting life through Jesus Christ.
