Greetings brothers and sisters!

Throughout the annals of history, it has been our sacred duty and privilege to transmit the living message of Christ through the Apostolic Tradition. In his final days, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, entrusted the Twelve Apostles, with the task of giving an authentic interpretation of the messages of the Holy Mother Church. Since then, the apostles and their successors have preached and witnessed the message of the Lord. Assisted by the Holy Spirit, and guided by the Magesterium of the Church, our work never ceases; we have been given the mission of living more fully from the gift of divine revelation, now let us share it with others!

May the Lord continue to bless us now and forever,

Greetings fellow brothers and sisters!

Today, I am proud to announce that we welcome our Christian brothers and sisters in the nation of Kilnore to the Church.

The Church is grateful for your annual monetary donation, and The Holy Mother Church is also grateful for the continued support of Arch-Patriarch Alexander Julius Luke VI. In recognition of his hard work and deeds, the Holy Father wishes me to announce that the Church recognizes the legitimacy of the Arch-Patriarch's titles. His Holiness also wishes me to convey his personal thanks to the Arch-Patriarch and is thus also elevating the Arch-Patriarch to the position of Cardinal.

May Christ be with you always,

FROM: His Holiness Pope Celestine VI


Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice!

Today is a momentous occasion for the Holy Mother Church We are proud that our Lacian brothers and sisters from Lacus Magni are reaffirming the supremacy of the Holy See and their being in communion with His Holiness Celestine VI. The Faith would certainly not have survived tumultuous years without the unwavering support of people such as our Lacian brothers and sisters, who in fact, have supported us for almost two millennium.

On behalf of the Church I would like to personally thank Caesar Jason Augustus, the Imperator of Lacus Magni for his dedication and steadfastness to the True Faith. I would also like to thank the Reverend Vespasianus Hostillius, Patriarch of Castellum for his many years of service. As a sign of gratitude, the Church officially recognizes the legitimacy of the Patriarch of Castellum's title. Thank you for your continued support and may we all rejoice in the glory of God!


God bless,

TO: All Brothers & Sisters of The Faith
FROM: The Most Reverend Archbishop Giovanni Comastri, S.L., Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples



Miraculous news!

The Church keeps growing day by day! This miracle shows that the word of the Lord and the Doctrine of the Holy Mother Church have been taken to heart. We are glad to welcome many nations to our flock today: Libre Borinquen, Blood Rose, San Pellegrino Romana, Numuria, Islands of St Louis, Blouman Empire, Greengrow, Mcnernia, Zeorus, New Carloso, and Malaysii. Our brethren in these nations have accepted the supremacy of the Holy See and are now in communion with His Holiness Celestine VI. We grateful for all of the monetary donations, and would like to assure everyone that the donations will be put to good use in funding the Papal Charities. On behalf of His Holiness, I also grant any and all requests to legitimize the titles of the heads of each respective national Congregation.


God bless,

Archbishop Giovanni Comastri
Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples

Catholic Nation? Join the Roman Catholic Church!
The Roman Catholic Church does not claim to be the real-life Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church thread is a religious organization that functions as the RCC in the NS Universe. Please telegram any comments, questions, or concerns to this nation.
