Vatican euro coins are rare, how rare? Vatican is only allowed to mint 1 million euros worth a year.

    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.

http://carluz.uk.cloudlogin.co/wonderfuldreams/wonderful.htm (where you can find all information, vídeos, pics, ...) A sweet presentation of Vatican (http://carluz.uk.cloudlogin.co/wonderfuldreams/vatican/vatican.htm). Can you feel it? 24/10/2012 e 26/10/2012 - Vaticano O Vaticano ou Cidade do Vaticano, oficialmente Estado da Cidade do Vaticano, é a sede da Igreja Católica e uma cidade-Estado soberana sem costa marítima cujo território consiste de um enclave murado dentro da cidade de Roma, capital da Itália. Com aproximadamente 44 hectares (0,44 km²) e com uma população de pouco mais de 800 habitantes, é o menor país do mundo, tanto por população quanto por área. A Cidade do Vaticano é uma cidade-Estado que existe desde 1929. É distinta da Santa Sé, que remonta ao Cristianismo primitivo e é a principal sé episcopal de 1,142 bilhão de Católicos Romanos (Latinos e Orientais) de todo o mundo. O Tratado de Latrão, de 1929, que criou a cidade-Estado do Vaticano, a descreve como uma nova criação (preâmbulo e no artigo III) e não como um vestígio dos muito maiores Estados Pontifícios (756-1870), que anteriormente abrangiam a Itália central. A maior parte deste território foi absorvido pelo Reino de Itália em 1860 e a porção final, ou seja, a cidade de Roma, com uma pequena área perto dele, dez anos depois, em 1870. 24/10/2012 e 26/10/2012 -- Vatican City Vatican City, or Vatican City State, is a landlocked sovereign city-state whose territory consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It has an area of approximately 44 hectares (110 acres), and a population of just over 800. This makes Vatican City the smallest independent state in the world by both area and population. Vatican City was established as an independent state in 1929 by the Lateran Treaty, signed by Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Gasparri, on behalf of Pope Pius XI and by Prime Minister and Head of Government Benito Mussolini on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy. Vatican City State is distinct from the Holy See, which dates back to early Christianity and is the main episcopal see of 1.2 billion Latin and Eastern Catholic adherents around the globe. The Lateran Treaty in 1929, which brought the city-state into existence, spoke of it as a new creation (Preamble and Article III), not as a vestige of the much larger Papal States (756--1870) that had previously encompassed much of central Italy. Most of this territory was absorbed into the Kingdom of Italy in 1860, and the final portion, namely the city of Rome with Lazio, ten years later, in 1870. Vatican City is an ecclesiastical or sacerdotal-monarchical state, ruled by the Bishop of Rome—the Pope. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic clergymen of various national origins. It is the sovereign territory of the Holy See (Sancta Sedes) and the location of the Pope's residence, referred to as the Apostolic Palace. The Popes have generally resided in the area that in 1929 became Vatican City since the return from Avignon in 1377, but have also at times resided in the Quirinal Palace in Rome and elsewhere. Previously, they resided in the Lateran Palace on the Caelian Hill on the far side of Rome from the Vatican. Emperor Constantine gave this site to Pope Miltiades in 313. The signing of the agreements that established the new state took place in the latter building, giving rise to the name of Lateran Pacts, by which they are known.

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."

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. Theodore II (December, 897): reigned for 20 calendar days Sisinnius (January 15February 4, 708): reigned for 21 calendar days Marcellus II (April 9–May 1, 1555): reigned for 22 calendar days Damasus II (July 17–August 9, 1048): reigned for 24 calendar days Pius III (September 22October 18, 1503): reigned for 27 calendar days. Leo XI (April 1–April 27, 1605): reigned for 27 calendar days Benedict V (May 22–June 23, 964): reigned for 33 calendar days. John Paul I (August 26–September 28, 1978): reigned for 33 calendar days.
