Have you ever gone to the Vatican’s official web site to find something and found yourself praying to St. Anthony of Padua to help you find what you are looking for? Are you convinced the the web designer for Vatican.va is a gnostic and that you need hidden knowledge to be able to navigate the circle of confusion?
For example when you saw this icon did you know that this is the link to the various news services? Did you know that clicking on Paths of the Spirit will bring you to spiritual commentary by the saints? Of course the page hasn’t been updated since 18 April 2003 and you have to speak Italian or Spanish to read any of it. You spent hours and hours looking for a homily from the Holy Father only to finally find it but only in a language you can’t read. This of course happens no matter how many languages you can speak. This is because when you select the desired language on the index page the site then makes sure that the majority of links will not be in that language.
There was just nothing you could do about until now except to offer up your navigation frustrations. Secrets of Vatican.va will help you to actually find encyclicals, papal bulls, news releases, and the latest speeches or homilies you are looking for.
Learn exciting tips like that rolling over some icons will actually reveal the links that they actually go to. Read and you will receive valuable tips, click and you find, knock on the right icon and you will find what you are looking for. Because the Vatican’s site is confusing and the way is hard, that leads to data, and those who find it are few.
