Italy named a mountain peak for PopeJohnPaulII on what would have been his 85th birthday May 18. At the same time, some 12,285 people have signed an online petition to call the late pope “John Paul the Great,” even as his potential sainthood has been approved for fast-track status by his successor, Pope Benedict XVI. John Paul died April 2 at age 84. His 26-year reign was the third-longest in church history. The peak named after John Paul is in the Gran Sasso Mountains in the Apennines range east of Rome.
