Catholic Wealth and Spending Infographic

by | Mar 9, 2014 | Latest

These discussions never seem to go away, so here’s something (hopefully) socially friendly to help discussions! “Sell the Vatican, Feed the worldโ€ goes the urban legend. Here are a couple considerations for the secular world in general and non-Catholic Christians who share this attitude.

To the statement โ€œThe Catholic church wastes billions of dollars on chairs and cathedrals when it could be feeding the poor,โ€ a good response is to show what the Church does with the money, and to compare it to other big businesses.

Hi Dominic? Is it? Thank you so much for writing this! Did I get that correct, you wrote this and put it all together. Wow, a lot of good works here. Thank you so much. Just wanted to add that the Vatican is also its own separate entity with its own currency which is therefore backed up with real wealth. Something the good ole USA doesn’t believe in? Also, I can’t help but mention I am disappointed you are glorifying/promoting smoking? ๐Ÿ™ Please consider not smoking or at least not promoting smoking. Blessings, Paige

Actually the Vatican does not have its own currency. It uses the euro.
