 SYMBOLUM.NET - Church of Rome
It is the pope's ecclesiastical jurisdiction (the "Holy See") and not his secular jurisdiction (Vatican City) that conducts international relations; for hundreds of years, the pope's court (the Roman curia) has functioned as the government of the Roman Catholic Church.
The name "Holy See" (also "Apostolic See") is, in ecclesiastical terminology, the ordinary jurisdiction of the bishop of Rome (including the Roman curia); the pope's various honors, powers, and privileges within the Roman Catholic Church and the international community derive from his episcopate of Rome in lineal succession from Saint Peter.
The pope derives his pontificate from being bishop of Rome but is not obligated to reside in Rome; according to the Latin formula ubi papa, ubi curia, wherever the pope resides is the central government of the Church, provided that the pope is bishop of Rome.
