What light through yonder winder shines?

Seen one, seen 'em all:

An article on Friday about efforts by the Vatican Bank to polish its image misidentified the country whose famously murky finances were cleaned up in part by René Brülhart, a Swiss lawyer hired last year as the head of the Vatican’s internal financial watchdog. It is Liechtenstein, not Luxembourg.

Anything else you want to tell us about that story, Nation's Newspaper of Record?

The article also misstated a word in a Gospel lesson depicted in a painting hanging in the building that houses the Vatican Bank. The lesson begins, “Render unto Caesar” — not “Render under Caesar.”

I tend to think of that lesson as "beginning" with the Pharisees muttering among themselves, but either way, this is a great season for corrections on the religion front.

Oy, that a writer (and editor) would not know one of the most famous passages of the Gospels, and one that has been a part of the secular world for ages - yea, verily, since the days of King James.
