Most kids think of popes as old men who live quiet lives in the Vatican. In fact, danger stalks every pope. From John Paul II (who was shot) all the way back to the first pope, the men God places in charge of His Church have been hated and attacked for their goodness for the good the Church does.These pages recount the adventures of St. Peter, the first pope, whose troubles began just days after Jesus returned to Heaven. When Peter preached, baptized three thousand people, and cured a lame man, soldiers threw him in prison. Set free by a judge, Peter preached again, won more converts, and got jailed again… and again.

Catholic Teaching: SquirmersWe have good Masses and bad Masses. When my husband, Tim, and I were courting, we went to Mass together every Sunday. Some weekday mornings we’d meet for 7:30 Mass at the little church near my house. On a winter morning, I would kneel on the kneeler’s stiff, cool leather and watch the gray light filtering through the high windows brighten to white.
