RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Vatican has pledged 100,000 euros to repair the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, the Palestinian Authority said Wednesday.

A delegation from the Vatican met with PA Foreign Ministe Riyad al-Maliki in Ramallah to discuss a draft bilateral agreement, the PA said in a statement.

The Vatican delegation was headed by undersecretary for relations with states Ettore Balestrero and several Palestinian officials, including PA adviser on Christian affairs Ziad Bandak, also attended the meeting.

I know you should not laugh but 100,000 euros is a pitiful donation from a country. To put the donation into context, it will barely buy you the value of an apartment in Ramallah or Bethlehem.

I suppose it will pay for painting and some repairs. Hopefully Israel's zionist leaders won't get their sticky hands on the money.

#1 - It's not from a "country" as I'm sure you're well aware that there is no "country" called "Vatican." However, having said that, if you can do better than 100k, put up or shut up.

This is a great help to be grateful for! After all where in the world there is no problem, yet kind hearts prevails!
God bless generous people with positive outlook in life!

#1 is quite right a state or country with the resources that the Vatican has can do better, and be more generous in the future. Our local golf club raised a larger sum than that for our local children's hospital.
