XIII V MCMLXXXI


This coming thirteenth of May will be the twenty-fifth anniversary of the day a man shot Pope John Paul II in front of the basilica of St. Peter. The Vatican has now set a new marble plaque into the pavement on the spot where the Pope was shot in the northwest area of the square. The new plaque replaces the one reddish cobblestone that had been the only marker.
