With his Motu Proprio of 27 June 2015, Pope Francis placed the Press Office of the Holy See under the new Dicastery for Communication, and with it the various services the Press Office provides (e.g Vatican Information Service, the Daily Bulletin). The Press Office coordinates press contacts and publishes official news regarding the activities of the Holy Father and those of the different departments of the Holy See. Speeches, messages and various documents, as well as the position statements issued by the director, are published in their entirety.
Press Office communiques and papal texts are typically published in Italian, and translated into other languages for distribution. In the case of papal documents, these do not, however, formally represent the magisterium of the Pope, which are those published in Latin in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis (Acts of the Apostolic See, or AAS).
