Montegrappa Vatican Papal Pen Limited Edition

Time fly, it is christmas again. We feel it would be a good idea to posted a pen that are related to Christian in general. After "Choas", we wish this Christmas will bring peace on mother earth and more people and effort will be put into saving and helping the world.

We dig into our pen collection and found this pen, the Montegrappa Vatican Limited Edition. At that time, Montegrappa released six versions of the Vatican Limited Edition, including the sterling silver version shown here.

On one side of pen cap, Montegrappa engraved an exclusive image of Pope John Paul II in front of the Holy Door during the opening ceremony of the Jubilee of the year 2000.

On the other side, Montegrappa engraved the official logo of the Great Jubilaeum of the Year 2000's celebrations and an Latin inscription taken from the apostolic letter "lncarnationis Mysterium".

"PER CHRISTVM - IN SPIRITV SANCTO - AD DEVM PATREM"
"FOR CHRIST - IN HOLY SPIRIT - TO GOD THE FATHER"

Just below the Latin inscription is the signature of Holy Father Joannes Pauls II.
On the pen barrel, Montegrappa engraved the Holy Trinity (The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit), with Mary and John sitting between Jesus Christ.
You will noticed that Holy spirit is present as dove. The are many angels surrounding them. There four angles near the dove holding the gospels.

The 18K nib is decorated with Vatican symbol, St. Peter's key. It is platinum masked and iridium tipped for smooth writing.
You will notice that silhouette of St. Peter's Basilica is also engraved on the pen cap.
The cap is also decorated with the keys to St. Peter
