Q. 1. I heard that every country has a Nuncio. Can you tell me what that is?
A. 1.The Catholic Encyclopedia defines the Nuncio as:
"An ordinary and permanent representative of the pope, vested with both political and ecclesiastical powers, accredited to the court of a sovereign or assigned to a definite territory with the duty of safeguarding the interests of the Holy See. The special character of a nuncio, as distinguished from other papal envoys (such as legates, collectors), consists in this: that his office is specifically defined and limited to a defininte district (his nunciature), wherein he must reside; his mission is general, embracing all the interests of the Holy See; his office is permanent, requiring the appointment of a successor when one incumbent is recalled, and his mission includes both diplomatic and ecclesiastical powers."
In summary, the title of Nuncio is a diplomatic post of the Holy See. It is the highest title used for Catholic clerics who are diplomatic representatives of the Pope, they enjoying the status of ambassadors.
