Now you can eat with Pope Francis - or at least cook his favorite dishes

They say you can feast like a king, and now you can eat like a pope after a young chef from the Vatican's Swiss Guards published a cookbook featuring the favorite recipes of Pope Francis and his predecessors.

David Geisser, 24, who joined the elite Vatican security corps only a month ago, released his book, Buon Appetito, in Rome on Tuesday.

Terrorism in Middle East has reached 'unimaginable proportions,' pope says

 | 

The Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, are experiencing "terrorism of previously unimaginable proportions" in which the perpetrators seem to have absolutely no regard for the value of human life, Pope Francis said.

"It seems that the awareness of the value of human life has been lost; it seems that the person does not count and can be sacrificed to other interests. And all of this, unfortunately, with the indifference of many," he said during a special meeting at the Vatican on the Middle East.
