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 recently read a very well written book on Father Emil Kapaun,who recently received the Medal of Honor from President Obama. Father Kapaun is on the road to sainthood in the Catholic Church and I just wanted to express what a beautiful,devout priest he was - with all of the medias degrading of the priesthood this is a testament to one individual living his life with Christ totally in the service of others. The book is published by St.Ignatius Press and can also be ordered through Amazon. It does contain graphic details - because his bravery and unselfishness was carried out during the Korean War. I found it to be very interesting and edifying. It certainly made me grateful for all of the blessings I have in my life.
