The breakfast focused heavily on the upcoming beatification of Pope John Paul II, and the former speaker used the speech to promote his newest movie, "Nine Days that Changed the World," which documents Pope John Paul II's trip to Poland in 1979. Gingrich credited Paul's opposition to communism as being one of the biggest reasons for the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
