L’Osservatore Romano provides an invaluable service for all who wish to be fully and accurately informed about the life of the Church today.
L’Osservatore Romano – ‘The Roman Observer’ – is the name given to the daily newspaper published by the Vatican Press. Founded in 1861 by Marcantonio Pacelli. L’Osservatore Romano has been published for more than 150 years as the semi-official organ of the Vatican.
An English language weekly edition commenced publication in 1967. Weekly editions are intended for circulation among various nations so they omit the local news of Vatican City and give a fuller coverage of major Church happenings throughout the world.
The English language edition also publishes papal encyclicals and other important official pronouncements. It prints the Address the Holy Father gives each week at the General Audience, and articles from the Vatican Congregations and Councils dealing with questions facing our modern day living.
For people wanting to know just what the Church is thinking and teaching on various matters, L’Osservatore Romano is an indispensable source of information. People confused by much they hear about religion will find a safe and sure guide in the pages of this newspaper.
The Confraternity of Christ the Priest offers a service to those who wish to receive the English weekly edition of L’Osservatore Romano. Our office staff will arrange for the delivery of the newspaper anywhere in Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand or the Pacific Islands. In this way, those who wish to receive the Vatican paper are saved the trouble of negotiating foreign currency, exchange rates, bank charges and international postage. It is hoped that this service will introduce L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, to many more people of faith.
Annual subscription for a weekly, airmailed English edition of L’Osservatore Romano is $200.00 (postage is included). Cost of editions other than English are available on request.
