  Holy See - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1971, the Holy See announced the decision to adhere to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in order to "give its moral support to the principles that form the base of the treaty itself." It is also a guest of honour to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran, the Holy See's former Secretary for Relations with States, said that the Vatican City is a "minuscule support-state that guarantees the spiritual freedom of the Pope with the minimum territory".

 Holy See   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Although the Holy See is closely associated with the State of the Vatican City, the independent, sovereign state governed by the Holy See, the two entities are in fact separate and distinct.
The Holy See administers the Vatican City, including all diplomatic functions; foreign embassies are accredited to the Holy See rather than to the Vatican City, and the Holy See establishes diplomatic agreements ("Concordats") with other sovereign states, on behalf both of itself and of the Vatican City (as appropriate).
Because the Holy See comprises more than simply the Pontificate, it does not dissolve upon the death or resignation of the reigning Pope; in contrast, the heads of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia (such as the prefects of congregations) cease to hold office immediately upon the Pope's death.

The Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura is the administrative appellate tribunal of the Holy See and, consequently, the highest judicial authority of the Roman Catholic Church outside of the Pope himself.
Although the Holy See is closely associated with the State of the City of the Vatican, the independent, sovereign state governed by the Holy See, the two entities are in fact separate and distinct.
During a Sede Vacante - that is, the interregnum occurring between the Pope's death and the election of his successor - the government of the Holy See (and therefore of the Catholic Church) falls to the Chamberlain of the Holy Roman Church, the prelate appointed by the Pope to administer the temporalities (i.e.

The Holy See wishes to emphasize that, with regard to the use of condoms as a means of preventing HIV infection, it has in no way changed its moral position.
The Holy See regrets that not enough emphasis has been given to an understanding of the relationship between the promotion and protection of human rights based upon the recognition of the human dignity in which all human beings share, and the ability to be protected from the irresponsible behaviour of others.
Finally, the Holy See continues to call attention to the undeniable fact that the only safe and completely reliable method of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV is abstinence before marriage and respect and mutual fidelity within marriage.

 USCCB - (Bishops) - The Holy See and the Middle East
As far as the Holy See is concerned this dialogue is founded on the respect that the three religions have for one another.
So it is that the Holy See, which has no direct technical competence or ambition whatsoever to intervene in the territorial dispute dividing the two peoples, certainly cannot fail to concern itself with the safeguarding of the sacred and cultural dimension of the Holy Places of the three religions.
The recent diplomatic activity of the Holy See in that part of the world has never put forward technical solutions to the divergent politics, which have brought into such tragic conflict peoples who, sharing a common geography, history and faith in the one God, should be brothers.

 Church or State? The Holy See at the United Nations.
In granting the Holy See a non-member state permanent observer position, the Secretary-General of the United Nations was required to consult established criteria for a non--member state observer delegation.
As of January 1, 1985, the Holy See maintained diplomatic relations with only fifty-three countries.30 Therefore, it is unlikely that the Holy See maintained relations with a majority of the existing 112 member states of the United Nations at the time its mission was established.
Because it is uncertain whether the Holy See or the Vatican City can be regarded as a state under international law, the status of the Holy See as a non-member state permanent observer in the United Nations is questionable.

 The Holy See Delegation's Position on Sanctions
The Holy See has always opposed the use of indiscriminate coercive economic sanctions against a nation when they affect the basic human development of its people, and Pope John Paul 11 has spoken out, innumerable times, against them.
The Holy See recognized that there are legitimate reasons that the international community may resort to sanctions.
Finally, regarding the teaching of the Holy See, the Report remarked that "the legitimate decision by the international community never dispenses with the due attention that must be paid to the concrete fate of the civilian population".

Representing offices of the Holy See were Cardinal Sebastiani, Bishop Croci, Cardinal Edmund Szoka, president of the Governorate of Vatican City State and Cardinal Attilio Nicora and Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, president and secretary of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA).
The Holy Father used these monies for charitable purposes, in particular for the populations of countries struck by calamities of various natures: earthquakes, floods, wars, famine, epidemics, and refugees and for aid to Catholic works in the Holy Land that are experiencing economic difficulties due to the tensions and conflicts in that region..
In terms of the institutional activity of the Holy See (Secretariat of State, Congregations, Councils, Tribunals, the Synod of Bishops and various other offices), the president indicated that this sector closed the year with a deficit of 19.7 million euro, slightly lower than 2002.

 30Days - “Vatican” Resolution
The Holy See, in fact, was invited from the moment it opened its permanent mission to participate in the works of the General Assembly and it did so, sharing with other countries the unwritten procedure reserved to observers.
This is a democratic guarantee which allows participation in the debate to all the members of the international community who can and often do have divergent interests and positions, but who come together precisely to discuss and negotiate so as to resolve peacefully and in the interests of the common good their divergences and differences.
The Resolution was motivated solely by the desire to consolidate the participation of the Holy See in this discussion in a democratic and constructive spirit, that is inclusive and not exclusive.

 Archbishop Martino of Holy See to United Nations on Cairo
The Holy See interprets references to "family" or "families" in the light of Principle 9 of the Program of Action, that is, in terms of the duty to strengthen the family, the basic unit of society, and in terms of marriage as an equal partnership between man and woman, that is, husband and wife.
In this regard the Holy See further interprets "respecting their cultural values and religious beliefs" to refer to the cultural values and religious beliefs of their parents, that is, until the adolescent attains the age of majority.
The Holy See requests that this statement of interpretation be reflected verbatim in the final report of the 21st Special Session of the General Assembly.

 History of The Holy See (Vatican City State)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The term "Holy See" refers to the composite of the authority, jurisdiction, and sovereignty vested in the Pope and his advisers to direct the worldwide Roman Catholic Church.
As the "central government" of the Roman Catholic Church, the Holy See has a legal personality that allows it to enter into treaties as the juridical equal of a state and to send and receive diplomatic representatives.
Created in 1929 to provide a territorial identity for the Holy See in Rome, the State of the Vatican City is a recognized national territory under international law.

 CFFC SEE CHANGE
We believe that the Holy See, the government of the Roman Catholic church, should participate in the UN in the same way as the world's other religions do—as a non-governmental organization.
The Holy See is by definition a "non-territorial religious entity." It is not a state--it is the government of the Roman Catholic church.
Seeking NGO status for the Holy See is not anti-Catholic--indeed, it would protect the rights of all religions at the UN and the right of the institutional Catholic church to be heard and appreciated as a religious body, not as a quasi-governmental entity.

 The Holy See and the Chair of St. Peter
The term "see," from the Latin "sedes," is actually the technical term for all dioceses and the places of residence for their bishops.
For example, Bishop Loverde is the bishop of the "See of Arlington" and his cathedral of residence is the Cathedral of St. Thomas More, also in Arlington; the cathedral also houses the bishop’s cathedra or throne.
Clearly, the terms "Holy See" and "Apostolic See" evolved to refer specifically to the authority of the Holy Father and Diocese of Rome.

 Jerusalem and the Holy See
While the Holy See claims no competence to enter into territorial disputes between nations, on the contrary, it has the right and the duty to remind the parties of the obligation to resolve their controversies peacefully, in accordance with the principles of justice and equity, within the international legal framework.
The Holy See wants to preserve the uniqueness of the most sacred parts of the city, called holy places, so that in the future neither of the parties and none of the three religions can claim them exclusively for themselves, because they are part of the patrimony which belongs to the whole world.
And they know that the formula proposed by the Holy See is intended to avoid that, in the future, the most sacred parts of the city be claimed by one party or one religion as its own, independently of the political status of the whole city.

 Statement Made by Archbishop Renato R. Martino: The Rights of the Child
The Holy See has held and continues to maintain definite positions on several items which were the object of the extensive debate that led to the formulation of the text of the Convention.
The Holy See regards the present convention as a proper and laudable instrument aimed at protecting the rights and interests of children, who are "that precious treasure given to each generation as a challenge to its wisdom and humanity" (Pope John Paul II, 26 April 1984).
The Holy See remains confident that the ninth preambular paragraph will serve as the perspective through which the rest of the Convention will be interpreted, in conformity with Article 31 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties of 23 May 1969.

The Holy See became a Permanent Observer State at the United Nations in April 1964, and has since taken active part in all Assembly sessions.
In adopting the resolution the Assembly said it is, "Desirous of contributing to the appropriate participation of the Holy See in the work of the General Assembly in the context of the revitalization of the work of the Assembly."
The Holy See, which in the past disseminated its views through press releases, will now have the right to "its communications relating to the sessions and work of all international conferences convened under the auspices of the General Assembly issued and circulated directly, and without intermediary, as official documents of those conferences."

 U.S. Congress Supports Holy See's Presence at UN

The Holy See is grateful to the members of the U.S. Congress and applauds the supporters of this measure for their efforts to ensure the Resolution's full acceptance.
Whereas, although the Holy See was an active participant in a wide range of United Nations activities since 1946 and was eligible to become a member state of the United Nations, it chose instead to become a nonmember state with Permanent Observer status over 35 years ago, in 1964;

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Holy See
In this canonical and diplomatic sense, the term is synonymous with "Apostolic See", "Holy Apostolic See", "Roman Church", "Roman Curia".The origin of these terms can only be approximately ascertained.
During the journey of Martin V (1417-1431) from Constance to Rome it frequently occurred that the pope and ecclesiastical authorities were separated from each other; even at this late date the official location of the "Holy See", in as far as this was legally important, was not yet authoritatively fixed.
This uncertainty, says Bangen, caused Clement VIII to draw up the Constitution: "Cum ob nonnullas", in which it is laid down that, if the pope and the pontifical administration should not reside in the same place, the utterances of both are authoritative, provided they are in agreement with each other.
