This picture taken on December 24, 2012 shows a cross after Pope Benedict XVI blessed faithfuls at the end of Christmas Eve mass at St. Peter's Basilica to mark the nativity of Jesus Christ, in Vatican City. Pope Benedict XVI said in his Christmas Eve mass that religion can be corrupted, leading to violence and wars, but refuted critics who claim that denying God's existence would lead to peace.
