Following last year’s hideous display of bad taste and politically correct pandering, this year’s Nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square plunges to the nadir of this annus horribilis.
From Vatican News:
The Monumental Nativity Scene is made up of ceramic statues. It is a work created by the pupils and the teachers of the Art Institute “F.A. Grue”, the current state art high school for design, which, in the decade 1965-1975, dedicated its teaching activity to the Christmas theme.
St. Peter’s Square will see only part of the fragile collection, made up of 54 statues, exhibited.
In studio, which does its best…
In situ… which is worse… Hmmm…. doesn’t look like the shot, above. But… just what is that?
What the hell is this? Star Wars?
I know! That’s the Mandalorian with “Baby Yoda” and one of his Sand People allies!
At this point I would insert a short Christmas hymn from a Tusken Raider.
To my mind this just about sums up the contribution of the Holy See to the world this year.
