Vatikanet vurderer besøksgrense

Minst ti personer besvimer hver dag i folkemengdene på vei til Det sixtinske kapell i Vatikanet. Det hevder turistguider, ifølge NRK. 
Nå vurderer Vatikanstaten at det skal settes en grense på antall besøkende, skriver The Guardian. Vatikanet har seks millioner besøkende i året, og på de travleste dagene kan 25,000-30,000 besøkende være innom.

Inntektene fra turistbesøket ble i 2014 på 100 millioner euro, fordelt på 80 millioner i billettinntekter og 20 millioner fra salg av suvenirer og andre artikler.   

Kapellet, som stod ferdig i 1481, er en del av Vatikanmuseene, som ligger i Vatikanpalasset  – pavens offisielle residens.

Vatikanet har kunngjort to nye helgener:

Pave Paul VI (1897-1978), pave fra 1963 til sin død, og som sto for en rekke reformer i Den katolske kirke, blir helgen, melder Vatikanet.

Også Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (1917-80), tidligere erkebiskop i El Salvadors hovedstad San Salvador, blir kanonisert.
Romero ble erkebiskop i 1977, og ble skutt og drept foran alteret da han holdt messe i et sykehuskapell i hovedstaden 24.mars 1980, etter å ha tatt til orde mot undertrykkelse og sosial urettferdighet.
Ingen er blitt dømt for drapet.

Vatikanstaten skrur av fontenene, også den på Petersplassen

Fontene på Petersplassen. Foto: wikipedia.org

Vatikanstaten skrur av alle fontener på sitt territorium, også den på Petersplassen, av hensyn til tørken som har rammet Roma og andre deler av Italia, melder NTB.

Kunngjøringen kom på Vatikanets radiostasjon, Vatican Radio, i går mandag. Der ble det understreket at beslutningen om å skru igjen kranene er i tråd med pave Frans’ synspunkter i miljøsaken. Paven har flere ganger kritisert sløsingen med vann.

Ifølge italienske meteorologer var våren i år den tredje tørreste i Italia på 60 år. Tørken har vedvart utover sommeren, og i den italienske hovedstaden er situasjonen nå så ille at guvernøren i Lazio-provinsen, og borgermesteren i Roma, vurderer vannrasjonering.

Som følge av dette har Vatikanstaten besluttet at samtlige fontener innenfor miniputtstatens område skal skrus av.

Pave Frans (80) har valgt å tilbringe sommerferien hjemme i Vatikanstaten, og forsøker å sørge for at alle holder humøret oppe, skriver VG Direkte

På døren til hans sparsommelige suite i Vatikanet har paven hengt opp et skillt hvor han skriver:

“Det er forbudt å klage. Mennesker som bryter med reglene vil få et syndrom som gjør dem til ofre, og som senker stemningen og evnen til problemløsning”. 

Videre opplyser skiltet om at: “Straffen blir doblet dersom overtredelsen skjer i nærheten av barn.”

For så å oppfordre til: “For å få det beste ut av deg selv, konsentrer deg om ditt eget potensiale, og ikke begrensningene”. 

Deretter avslutter skiltet med å si: “Slutt å klage og ta grep om ditt eget liv”.

Malaysia opens an embassy in the Vatican

Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman officially opened the Malay­sian Embassy in the Vatican during a visit to the Holy See on 9 May, the Channel NewsAsia reported.

“The opening of the embassy marks an important milestone and will elevate relations between Malaysia and the Holy See to greater height”, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

During this inaugural visit the Malaysian foreign minister met his counterpart, the Most Reverend Archbishop Paul Gallagher, and Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

Both sides were keen to collaborate on efforts to promote inter-religious dialogue and understanding.

Diplomatic ties between Malaysia and the Holy See were established in 2011, following Prime Minister Najib Razak’s visit to the Vatican City.

Anifah Aman’s visit also provided Malaysia with the opportunity to make clear its concept of moderation under the Global Move­ment of Moderates (GMM), which is aimed at promoting tolerance, understanding and respect through upholding the values of moderation and the rejection of extremism, it said.

The GMM initiative was formulated based on Malaysia’s experience in successfully developing its political, economical and social infrastructure by providing an environment of racial and religious harmony, the foreign ministry’s statement added.
