Where can I find the Pope's postal address?


I would like to write a letter to the Pope but I have been unable to find his address. I searched the Vatican web site, I did a search at the Catholic Answers web site and on the Internet, but I haven’t been able to find his address (NOT his email address). Can Catholic Answers point me in the right direction?


Here is the address:

His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI
Apostolic Palace
00120 Vatican City

According to some sources, you should not put the word “Italy” anywhere on the envelope because that will mean that the letter will be routed through the Italian mailing system, which is separate from the Vatican’s.
