Pope-Benedict-XVIFor the first time in it’s 80 year history, Vatican Radio – the voice of the Roman Catholic Church is starting to air advertisements.

It seems now that the Vatican is also suffering from the economic downturns, however it’s radio advertisements could raise more than $300,000 over the next six months for the Church, with Enel, an Italian gas and electricity company, being to first company to run it’s commercials.

Vatican radio. transmits its programmes in 45 languages on FM and the internet with the aim of spreading the message of the Pope and the Church’s Christian teachings. Until now, it had been funded entirely by the Catholic Church at a cost of $40 million a year.
