    VATICAN CITY — The Vatican has started construction on its annual nativity set in St. Peter’s Square, and the display is expected to include a few animals that may not have been at Jesus’ birth.

    The Pope said in his third book on the life of Christ, Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives, released Nov. 21, that the ox and the donkey, regularly included in nativity scenes, are not mentioned in the gospels.

    But they are included in other parts of the Bible, which could have inspired Christians to use them in representations of the birth of Jesus.

    “No nativity scene will give up its ox and donkey,” Pope Benedict says in his new book, which eventually will be translated into 20 languages.
