March 13, 2013, Wednesday — A Special Message to My Readers

As the world’s attention is focused on the Vatican and the papal conclave, I would like my readers to be able to walk with me throughout the streets of Rome. The advance of technology and the presence of social media in our lives has made this more feasible.

I would like to invite you to follow me on facebook and twitter. I intend to use these platforms to post up-to-the-minute information on developments here and in the Vatican. I will be able to inform you, my readers, of upcoming interviews on major news networks and post pictures and videos that will give you a more intimate look at these historic preceedings. Also, please take time to spread the word. I provide unique commentary on the Vatican and papal affairs. Be sure to invite your friends and family to follow my updates so that my message can be spread as far as possible.

If you do not currently use these social platforms, do not worry. I will continue to use my newsflashes to communicate with my readers. These social media platforms are meant to provide additional content that I cannot otherwise provide through these Letters.

I would encourage you to visit our new websites: is an archive of all my old Newsflashes and these Letters. is an attempt to give balanced information, in a seminar format, with links to articles and papers on important matters that are pertinent to the current world situation. We welcome readers to contribute to the conversation by sharing thoughtful and intelligent comments.

I intend to continue printing the monthly publication, Inside the Vatican magazine, which I founded 20 years ago. If you are not a subscriber, please consider subscribing today!

We will launch the new website in the next few days which will have the digital version of the magazine. Make sure you visit our new site and see an archive of the last 15 issues!

The Moynihan Letters will remain a free service. If you have enjoyed these letters, please consider a donation to help support our work.

I appreciate your support and look forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions during these historic times. –Robert Moynihan
