Vatican Daily Launches Argentine Edition

BUENOS AIRES – Official Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano launched on Friday a locally produced edition for Argentina with the aim of directly connecting the Argentine-born Pope Francis to his homeland.

“Through the Holy See’s newspaper it will be possible to learn directly about the pope’s ministry,” the former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio said in a handwritten letter published in the first issue of the new Argentine edition.

“I pray for the Lord’s blessings on everyone working on this project in the service to the Kingdom of God, and for the Virgin Mary’s protection to all of them,” Francis wrote.

Initially to be published monthly, the Argentine version will appear weekly starting in March.

The Argentine edition of the Vatican daily will be overseen by Protestant theologian Marcelo Figueroa, a close friend of the pope, with help from Santiago Pont Lezica, director of FM Milenium radio in Buenos Aires.

L’Osservatore Romano editor Giovanni Maria Vian said the Argentine edition is “a great novelty” for the official Vatican newspaper because it is published in a South American country under the direction of a non-Catholic Christian.
