CWN Editor's Note: L’Osservatore Romano was first published on July 1, 1861, during the reign of Blessed Pius IX.

“1 July will mark the 160th anniversary of the first edition of L’Osservatore Romano, the ‘party newspaper,’ as I call it,” Pope Francis said on June 29. “Best wishes and many thanks for your service. Continue your work with fidelity and creativity.”
