The Holy See is the universal government of the Catholic Church and operates from the Vatican City State, a sovereign and independent territory. The Pope is the ruler of the Vatican City State and the Holy See. The Holy See, the supreme body of the Catholic Church, is a sovereign legal body of international law. The United States and the Holy See consult and cooperate on international issues of common interest, including human rights, the prevention of peace and conflict, the elimination and development of poverty, environmental protection and interfaith understanding. Since his inauguration, Pope Francis has acted as a global defender of human dignity and justice, based in particular on the moral imperative of caring for the poor and excluded. The United States and the Holy See have a positive relationship that serves to reinforce a global message of peace, freedom and justice. The United States and the Holy See are working together on common priorities such as promoting religious freedom and combating human trafficking. The victory was as short-lived as that of his father, Henry IV, over Gregory VII. The clergy asked Paschal to revoke his agreement, which he did in 1112. The dispute followed the predictable course: Henry V rebelled and was excommunicated. Riots broke out in Germany, a new antipapst Gregory VIII was appointed by the King of Germany, the nobles loyal to Rome separated from Henry.
The civil war continued, as under Henry IV. It took another ten years. Like his father before him, Henri V was facing a diminishing power. He had no choice but to renounce the investiture and the old right to appoint the pope. The Worms match was the result. After the Concordaque, the German kings never had the same control over the Church as they did during the Ottons dynasty.  Henry V was reintegrated into communion and recognized as a legitimate emperor. After the Second Vatican Council, which ended in 1965, the term “concordate” was abolished, but it reappeared with the Polish Concorda of 1993 and the Portuguese Concorda of 2004. Another model of relations between the Vatican and different states developed following the declaration of the Second Vatican Council on religious freedom, Dignitatis humanae.

In 1077, he went to Canossa, in northern Italy, where the pope was at Countess Matilda`s castle to apologize personally.  The pope was suspicious of Henry`s motives and did not believe that he was truly repentant. [Citation required] As a gesture of repentance for his sins and drawing inspiration from his own punishment to the Saxons after the first battle of Langensalza, he wore a hairdryer and stood barefoot in the snow on the so-called Walk to Canossa. Gregor lifted the excommunication, but the German aristocrats, whose rebellion is known as the Great Saxony Revolt, were not ready to give up their chance and chose a rival king, Rudolf von Rheinfeld. Three years later, Pope Gregory reiterated his support for von Rheinfeld and excommunicated then at the Synod of March 7, 1080, Henry IV.  Henry, on the other hand, summoned a bishop to Bresses, who declared Gregory illegitimate.  The internal revolt against Henry ended the same year, when Rudolf von Rheinfeld died.
