Being the centre of Christianity in the world, the Vatican witnesses every year a multitude of pilgrims, who come to take part in the celebrations of the liturgical year, especially at Easter and Christmas time. From the Vatican, the prayers and messages of the Pope reach the entire world through various media channels, notably in moments such as the Sunday’s Angelus on St. Peter’s Square, the Urbi et Orbi blessings and the canonisations of new Blessed and Saints of the Church. It is in St. Peter’s Basilica that the celebrations of the Holy Week and Christmas take place and are viewed by millions of faithful in the whole world, on TV, via radio or online.
