Sister Cristina Scuccia, 25, in full habit on prime time, thanked God last night for her victory. My presence here is not up to me, it’s thanks to the man upstairs!’ she cried.
If – as she naively maintains – He really was responsible, the other contestants must surely claim the nun had an unfair advantage and demand a fresh contest. One way or other, Sister Cristina has hit a new nadir in the grovelling of church to popular culture.
Is this the Vatican’s riposte to Madonna? Or should we just celebrate the innocence of Cristina’s faith?
