Crib At The Vatican

The Vatican is ready for a holy Christmas with solidarity in the mix. 

The Nativity scene is from Malta and the boat reflects that as well as the refugees crossing the Mediterranean.

Rubble from the Basilica of St. Benedict in Norcia, destroyed by an earthquake, lies at the foot of the tree. 

Donations left at the Nativity scene will go toward rebuilding a church in the central Italian town.

The ornaments on the tree were decorated by children who are patients in the pediatric oncology wards of several Italian hospitals.
