In 1975 the Pope set up a residence in La Plata in order to protect the Catholic Church from zombies that had threatened and destroyed the Vatican City in Rome. Thus the Vatican set up two residences, one in Cagliari and one in La Plata. After the pope was killed in 1978, the new pope, being St. Xavier from Argentina, set up more of a permanent residence in La Plata. Later upon the creation of the Republic of Italy, a new Vatican was built in Rome. The Pope now visits all three sites, but spends over half the year, including Christmas in La Plata.
Easter is traditionally spent in Cagliari or Rome. The Vatican aims to help all Catholics obtain a higher spirituality and directly assist Catholic nations in removing zombies from their nations.
