Vatican media are singing the praises of the musical legacy of the Beatles and sounding philosophical about John Lennon's boast that the British band was more popular than Jesus.

Saturday's edition of Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano recalls that Lennon's boast outraged many in 1966. But it says the remark now can be written off as the bragging of a young man wrestling with unexpected success.

The newspaper was noting the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' "White Albm."
Listening to the album, the newspaper says, makes clear how creative the Beatles were, compared to what it calls the "standardized, stereotypical" songs being produced today.
