The Vatican has happily accepted a donated Nativity scene for St. Peter's Square this Christmas after a previous setup costing 550,000 euros ($717,000) was exposed by the embarrassing scandal over leaked Vatican documents.
The Vatican's new ambassador to the United States was at the center of explosive allegations about corruption at the Holy See just before Pope Benedict XVI sent him to Washington.
"Holy Father," he said in a March letter, "my transfer right now would provoke much disorientation and discouragement in those who have believed it was possible to clean up so many situations of corruption and abuse of power that has been rooted in the management of so many [Vatican] departments."
"Work was always given to the same companies at costs at least double compared to those charged outside the Vatican," he said in another letter.
