  • Galileo Galilei, an Italian physicist and astronomer, made the first complete astronomical telescope and used it to gather evidence that the Earth revolved around the Sun in 1611. Galileo was honored by the Vatican and the American Academy in Rome on the 400th Anniversary of demonstration of Galileo's telescope on April 14, 2011. It was a bold initiative on behalf of Vatican as church teaching at the time of Galileo had placed Earth at the center of the universe and the church denounced Galileo's theory as dangerous to the faith.

To mark Good Friday on April 22, 2011 Pope answered seven questions relative both to the suffering of Christ on the cross and to the overall question of pain and suffering.
