VATICAN TO OPEN THEME STORE IN NEW YORK

          NEW YORK (CWNews.com) - A New York newspaper reported on Wednesday that the Vatican will open a store in New York City to sell items inspired by art in the Vatican Museum.

          The New York Post said the store will bed linens, china, gift boxes, stationery, floor tiles, and other items. No site has been picked, but an architect has been hired and says the stores will have a Vatican theme, complete with ceiling frescoes.

          The Post reports the New York City store will be the first of over 400 around the world. The mass marketing effort follows in the steps of the Vatican Library Line of merchandise, which includes rosary boxes, pens, key chains, and rings with prayers inscribed inside. All earnings from the stores go toward renovations of the library and museum.
