It was not a serious waste of money. The tiara was financed by a German businessman who has the money, deep pockets, and a real love for the papacy. The tiara was specifically designed for Pope Benedict. If you look at the pictures of the tiara, you can see that it carries the coat of arms of Pope Benedict. The other Papal tiaras were not made for Benedict and this one was, with his coat of arms. The Pope should have the finest things available befitting the sublimity and magnificence of his Papal office and Monarchy. He is a true monarch. We should always help the poor, but as Christ said, the poor are always with us. The Pope is not.

Helping the poor does not mean the the Church sacrifices the beautiful things that are for God, such as the gold chalices at Mass, the marble altars, the beautiful vestments, and yes, even a gold tiara for the vicar of Christ. For centuries, it was the poor peasants that gave all the money they had, so that their poor parish could have a gold chalice that could be used for Mass, and the whole village would be proud of it.
