Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

I'm grateful you encouraged the People We Think Are Saints thread Meg. Those posts are amazing.
I'm grateful for the God-given gift of life today. May it be held sacred.
It hit me although of course I have heard it before. I am grateful that God is so generous that He does not ever take away our free will. He allows us to turn our backs on Him, reject Him over and over, treat His Son the way we did and do, with sin, and hurt each other. In spite of it all, He loves us and respects us so much, he continues to let us choose, each and every day. He is totally vulnerable to our hurting Him but that is how He chooses to be. There is such a huge lesson here but I still don't totally grasp it, of course.
What we love the most, God will indeed let us have. If it is goodness, we receive Heaven and if it is not....
Every remaining day of life offers again, the choice. I am grateful He asks us again, what do you love the most?
