Vatican Misspells ‘Jesus’ on Papal Medals

6,000 commemorative medallions are being recalled.
A commemorative medal of the first year of the pontificate of Pope Francis containing a spelling mistake not more for sale

So much for papal infallibility, comments Spiegel today, in a story about embarrassed Vatican officials who are recalling 6,000 commemorative medallions made in honor of Pope Francis after misspelling “Jesus” as “Lesus.”

The gold, silver and bronze medals were made by the Italian State Mint to commemorate the beginning of Pope Francis’s papacy.

The medallions, which went on sale Tuesday, depict Pope Francis and a Latin phrase that he has said inspired him as a young man to pursue a life in the church.

The Vatican’s official press office said on Thursday that only four of the misspelled medals had already been sold before the recall. If the medals become valuable collector’s items, which they will, it isn’t clear if their purchasers should thank Lesus for their good fortune.

    The cynic in me suggests someone is going to 'accidentally' make a bundle on ebay selling the misspelled ones. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.

    Even though he may not be Jewish, Why would you publish something that embarrasses them? I know they may not be Jewish but we need to apply the same courtesy to all or we look as bad as those that do this to us!

  12. but I don't even believe in Jebus!

  13. Jesus was a friend to dishonest tax collectors, and made them repent and give the money they stole back to the people. So maybe it wasnt a mistake?
