About Us

zenit is an international, non-profit news agency staffed by a team of professionals and volunteers who are convinced that the extraordinary wisdom of the Pontiff and the Catholic Church can nourish hope, and assist all of humanity to find truth, justice and beauty.

Our objective is to transmit information with a maximum level of professionalism, fidelity and service to the truth.

Through the use of internet technologies, we aim to open a window to “the world seen from Rome.» With this aim, we translate and publish the Roman Pontiff’s words, messages, documents, speeches, and general audience addresses.

We report and offer commentary on what happens within the Roman Curia, pontifical universities, bishops’ conferences, sanctuaries, dioceses and parishes. We report on the major religious events of the world, informing about the themes, debates and events of interest to Christians, men and women of faith and non-believers of every continent.

zenit is an independent agency.


The coverage we offer focuses above all on:

The Pope’s activities: apostolic trips, documents, meetings with state officials, and leading personalities from the realms of society, culture and religion. Our reports focus especially on the Holy Father’s activities and addresses. His words stimulate reflection for all peoples, not only Catholics.

Interviews with men and women of the Church, as well as politicians and cultural leaders, on themes of interest.

International current events, with special attention to issues relevant to human rights, peace and development around the world.
