Of past and present Popes

The beatification of John Paul II dominated the agenda, with stories on virtually every aspect of his life and this weekend's ceremony. Items range from a 3D broadcast from Rome, miracles posted on the Vatican website, a meeting with Fidel Castro, and Polish pilgrims who want to see his relics. In keeping with the spirit, a new film has been released about a boy who wants to sing for the Pope.
