Translation from the Latin

My schoolboy Latin is just not up to it
Does anyone have an accurate translation of the Testimonium granted by the Vatican?
It seems silly to me to have it proudly displayed on my office wall with only an inkling of what it actually says .

That's Minihaha you're thinking of :)

I tried Google translate but Latin is a complex language and differs vastly from the literal to the inferred or implied meaning .

Roughly : (could do a more formally literal one if I took a bit more time with it, but the sense of it is there)
