  • New rules may not make it easier to collect Vatican Coins

    They come in gold, silver and bronze. Collectors pay big bucks for them online. And every time a new batch arrives they go as fast as the latest video game at retailers. Vatican euro coins are rare, how rare? Vatican is only allowed to mint 1 million euros worth a year. Most end up in sets that go for 30 euros at souvenir shops and nearly all in the hands of collectors, until now. Pier Paolo Francini Philatelic & Numismatic Office (Vatican) This new agreement is very important, because starting in 2010, Vatican City will be allowed to produce more coins than ever before. And distribute them like the rest. Under a new agreement between the Vatican and the European Union, the Vatican will be allowed produce double the monetary value of the coins starting in 2010, plus put 51 ...

  • ITALY: VATICAN CITY: POPE STAMPS

    Italian/Nat Polish and Vatican Post offices jointly issued stamps on Tuesday to celebrate the Pope's 80th birthday which falls on May 18. The Vatican's Philatelic Office issued three stamps showing Pope John Paul II, the Polish national icon Holy Mary of Czestochowa and the papal crucifix. It's a Vatican tradition to issue stamps on the 80th birthday of a Pope. To ensure greater quality, the stamps were produced using an antique and expensive artisan method of copper engraving - as opposed to the simpler and more widely used photographic method. The artistic realisation of the engraving was entrusted to Polish Professor Czeslaw Slania, reputedly the best living engraver of stamps. So far 500-thousand copies of the stamps have been issued.

Exorcisms - With advances in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and biology, it’s hard to believe that exorcisms are still performed by the Catholic Church. However, according to former exorcist Gabriele Amorth, who apparently performed 70,000 exorcisms in his office in the Vatican, there are around 300 exorcists worldwide and four working in Rome. 4. Retiring Popes - For most Popes, it’s a job they have until they die. It’s part of Catholic Dogma; it would be like a parent giving up his or her kids. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t allowed to. It’s just very rare that they resign or retire. In fact, over the past 1,000 years there have been 123 Popes and out of all of them, only five have abdicated. 3. The Banco Ambrosiano Scandal - The Vatican bank is officially known as the Institute for Religious Works, and from 1971 to 1989, the President of the bank was Archbishop Paul Marcinkus from Cicero, Illinois. Before that, the 6-foot-4 former rugby player worked as a bodyguard for Pope Paul VI. However, he’d be remembered for a scandal that broke in 1982. 2. The Apostolic Penitentiary - Catholic priests have some pretty awesome powers when it comes to granting absolution for committing crimes. This includes forgiving people for things like murder, or mass murders and even genocide. That’s right: if you’re Catholic and you chop up the family next door and eat them, you could go to a priest, and ask for forgiveness and he could forgive you. Not only that, but the priest could never tell the police. 1. The Vatican Bank and Nazi Gold - According to a 1946 document from the Treasury Department, the Vatican may have both held and smuggled Nazi gold during World War II, despite being a neutral entity.

"The Shocking Truth Why Pope Benedict Resigned" (remastered, reedited and made in HD quality ) This video (edited version) is intended to educate viewers of the circumstance surrounding the most controversial resignation of Pope Benedict the XVI. The Catholic church is a beacon of light and a source of hope to many of it's followers. The failings of it's hierarchy to uphold it's theocratic responsibility should serve as a warning to other Christian institutions of the grave consequences of their actions. (Original version published by Frontline) This was the shortest office held by a pope before RESIGNATION in almost 600 years. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York’s Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue. A Roman necropolis stood on Vatican Hill in pagan times. When a great fire leveled much of Rome in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero, seeking to shift blame from himself, accused the Christians of starting the blaze. He executed them by burning them at the stake, tearing them apart with wild beasts and crucifying them. Among those crucified was St. Peter—disciple of Jesus Christ, leader of the Apostles and the first bishop of Rome—who was supposedly buried in a shallow grave on Vatican Hill. By the fourth century and official recognition of the Christian religion in Rome, Emperor Constantine began construction of the original basilica atop the ancient burial ground with what was believed to be the tomb of St. Peter at its center. The present basilica, built starting in the 1500s, sits over a maze of catacombs and St. Peter’s suspected grave. Popes with the shortest reigns: Urban VII (September 15September 27, 1590): reigned for 13 calendar days, died before consecration. Boniface VI (April, 896): reigned for 16 calendar days Celestine IV (October 25November 10, 1241): reigned for 17 calendar days, died before consecration.

ITALY: VATICAN CITY: POPE STAMPS

Italian/Nat Polish and Vatican Post offices jointly issued stamps on Tuesday to celebrate the Pope's 80th birthday which falls on May 18. The Vatican's Philatelic Office issued three stamps showing Pope John Paul II, the Polish national icon Holy Mary of Czestochowa and the papal crucifix. It's a Vatican tradition to issue stamps on the 80th birthday of a Pope. To ensure greater quality, the stamps were produced using an antique and expensive artisan method of copper engraving - as opposed to the simpler and more widely used photographic method. The artistic realisation of the engraving was entrusted to Polish Professor Czeslaw Slania, reputedly the best living engraver of stamps. So far 500-thousand copies of the stamps have been issued. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "It's usual that when a Pope, and it has already happened in the past, when a Pope reaches his 80th birthday stamps are issued. This happened when Pope Paul VI turned 80 and so it's not something entirely new. This is an important moment of anybody's life, even more, naturally, in a Pope's life. This is clear. The real innovation is that the stamps are issued together with Poland." SUPER CAPTION: Pierpaolo Francini, head of the Vatican Philatelic Office SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "They are particular stamps because they are printed through the method of copper engraving, so they are created by engraving and not by photograph."

Garage fire near Vatican sparks fears for Pope, tourists, Witnesses have reported hearing an explosion near Vatican City in Italy before seeing thick black smoke rising into the sky. Continue below for pictures and videos from the scene. One news outlet in Rome claimed a large fire had erupted at an auto garage. However, an eyewitness living nearby told that the smoke looked to be coming from a neighborhood just behind the Vatican. He said he saw smoke, “then a few minutes later there was a loud boom and more smoke”. No official details are available yet on the cause of the smoke or its origin. However, there are unconfirmed reports that the fire originated in an auto salvage yard several miles away from the Vatican in the Battinisti neighborhood.

Benedict XVI DEPARTS the Vatican for Last Time as Pope | Pope Benedict XVI LEAVES Vatican City Benedict XVI DEPARTS the Vatican for Last Time as Pope | Pope Benedict XVI LEAVES Vatican City Benedict XVI DEPARTS the Vatican for Last Time as Pope | Pope Benedict XVI LEAVES Vatican City Pope Benedict XVI bade his final farewell to the faithful today, lifting off from the Vatican in a white helicopter as the first pope to resign in six centuries. "Thank you for your love and support," the pope tweeted from Benedict XVI ?@Pontifex. "May you always experience the joy that comes from putting Christ at the centre of your lives." With church bells ringing across Rome, the pope was driven to the helipad on the Vatican grounds for the 15-minute flight to the papal summer residence where he will assume the title "pope emeritus" after 8 p.m. local time. In his final remarks earlier in the day to colleagues in the Roman Catholic Church, Benedict had promised "unconditional reverence and obedience" to his eventual successor. Benedict, in a morning meeting at the Vatican, urged the cardinals to act "like an orchestra" to find "harmony" moving forward. Benedict, 85, is spending a quiet final day as pope, bidding farewell to his colleagues and moving on to a secluded life of prayer, far from the grueling demands of the papacy and the scandals that have recently plagued the church. His first order of business was a morning meeting with the cardinals in the Clementine Hall, a room in the Apostolic Palace. Despite the historical nature of Benedict's resignation, not all cardinals attended the event. With their first working meeting not until Monday, only around 100 cardinals were set to attend, the Vatican press office said Wednesday. Those who are there for Benedict's departure will be greeted by seniority.

The coins and notes will feature an up-to-date profile of Pope John Paul II - who is 81 and in the 24th year of his papacy. VOICE OVER 0002 The Vatican state has joined 12 European countries in switching to the new European currency, the euro. 0010 The papal state used the Italian lire from the beginning of the Italian Republic - just after the Second World War. 0018 But, like Italy, it converted to the euro on January 1st 2002. 0023 The walled city has adapted quickly to trading in the new money. 0027 From the end of next month, it will have its own specially minted euro coins and notes - carrying the image of Pope John Paul the second. 0036 At this post office on St Peter's Square the stamps are now printed with both euro and lire prices. 0043 The Vatican has always had its own postal system - and produces stamps bearing images of the Pope, holy relics and religious icons. 0052 At this tourist centre, the prices of all books and religious souvenirs are now marked in euros - and people are quickly adapting. 0101 And in St Peters Square, there is even a place for people to discard their soon to be useless lire coins. 0109 People throw coins towards this Christmas nativity scene - the coins are then collected and donated to charity.
