Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy marshmallows, which is kind of the same thing.

It's part of the wording. The text is from Matthew 1:18:
Christi autem generatio sic erat cum esset desponsata mater eius Maria
Ioseph antequam convenirent inventa est in utero habens [de Spiritu
The words in brackets are probably on the next page. The word
"Christi" in Latin is here rendered in an abbreviated Greek form
instead; that's a chi (the X), a rho (the P) and an iota (the I).
