About The City and the World

Welcome to our site! 
The name of our website was inspired by the traditional phrase “Urbi et Orbi,” wherein the Pope blesses the city of Rome and the entire world.
We wanted our scope to be, at the same time, as vast and as specific as this particular phrase.
We aim to show the beauty of Catholicism in its daily expression from the news and from the Vatican to the four corners of the earth.
In an online environment hostile to the Catholic Church and the pope (both from people from inside and outside the Church,) we seek to provide credible information about our religion, dissipate fake news, eschew ideological biases, and let our religion shine forth in all its truth and splendor. We provide coverage of some of the most breaking news affecting the Vatican, the Church, and Catholicism worldwide.
