Mongolian language joins the Vatican family

02 February 2024

Vatican Radio-Vatican News now speaks the language of Mongolia. Mongolian joins the 51 languages already present, both written and spoken, thanks to a collaboration with the local Church. The Sunday Angelus and Wednesday catechesis will be translated and published on the Vatican portal’s new dedicated language page.

“We are happy about this new possibility to read the words of the Holy Father in Mongolian”, said Cardinal Giorgio Marengo, Apostolic Prefect of Ulaanbaatar. “It is one of the fruits of his recent visit to the land of the eternal blue sky, which touched the hearts of Mongolian Catholics, but also that of many people of other religious beliefs, positively impressed by the great human and spiritual testimony of Pope Francis”.
