EWTN Catholic Q&A
What is the mailing address for the pope?
Question from Joe Kash on 04-20-2005:

My five year old would like to send pope Benedict a letter. He heard that the new pope is actually shy. My son is also very shy. When my son saw him speaking befor that large crowd he wanted to write him to share his prayers. Where should my son send his letter?

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 04-26-2005:

He can write the Pope at:

His Holiness Benedict XVI Apostolic Palace 00120 Vatican City State Europe

(No Rome or Italy. It will just slow it up.)
