If it made money for the Church why is it even a problem? :)
Apparently they got ripped off:
Pope's bodyguard resigns over new financial leaks scandal

The Vatican's latest scandal claimed its first victim Monday as Pope Francis' chief bodyguard resigned over the leak of a Vatican police flyer identifying five employees who were suspended as part of a financial investigation.

The Vatican said its police chief, Domenico Giani, bore no responsibility for the leaked flyer but resigned to avoid disrupting the investigation and "out of love for the church and faithfulness" to the pope.

The person who leaked the document to the Italian newsweekly L'Espresso remains unknown.

Giani, a 20-year veteran of the Vatican's security services, has stood by Francis' side and jogged alongside his popemobile during hundreds of public appearances and foreign trips. He also was the chief bodyguard for Pope Benedict XVI, and the Vatican took pains to stress his "unquestionable faithfulness and loyalty" to the Holy See.

Giani had signed the Oct. 2 police flyer after his agents raided two Holy See offices — the secretariat of state and the Vatican's financial intelligence unit — as part of an investigation by Vatican criminal prosecutors into alleged financial irregularities surrounding a 150 million euro investment into London real estate.

The deal, which allegedly resulted in middlemen ripping off millions of euros from the Holy See over the past decade, has itself raised questions about the Vatican's murky finances and poor investment strategies in the past decade.

The raids and related suspensions, launched following more recent efforts to recover some of the lost money, were highly unusual for the Vatican and sparked fresh speculation about its Machiavellian turf battles, power struggles and score-settling. [Ha ha!]

That the alleged leaker remains unknown has added to the mystery surrounding the case, which has implicated high-ranking Vatican cardinals and monsignors.

I hope the Pope sends in the Spanish Inquisition to clean tings up! :x





And in other (usual) news:
4 New York priests placed on leave after abuse allegations

NEW YORK — Four priests from the New York Roman Catholic Archdiocese have been placed on administrative leave following allegations of abuse of minors reaching back decades.

The newspaper Catholic New York reported this week that the prelates’ ministries are temporarily restricted.

In a letter sent to members of three different parishes, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the spiritual head of the archdiocese, says the leave “is not a punishment,” and that the men are presumed innocent pending the outcome of an independent investigation.

The fourth priest works in an administrative capacity.

Dolan said the cases have been reported to the District Attorney’s Office, and outside investigators will assess the allegations before a presentation to the Lay Review Board that will determine whether each priest is suitable to return to ministry.

Similar story closer to (my) home.

Much of $100 million from sale of Holy Name lot to go to church sex-abuse debts
Chicago Sun Times
Anticipating getting $100 million or more from the sale of a parking lot at Holy Name Cathedral, the Archdiocese of Chicago expects to spend most of that windfall repaying money that was borrowed to cover the financial costs of clergy sex abuse claims.

That’s according to a Chicago Sun-Times examination of the church’s most recent financial reports and interviews that show the archdiocese owes more than $200 million, mostly related to sex abuse claims. And the church estimates it could end up with another $100 million in costs for pending and future claims.

...
Note that this parking lot would have prohibitively high real estate taxes to remain a mere parking lot were it not for the church tax exemption.

Basically they were just sitting on it waiting for the right price, until the forced sale.
Just a little follow up.

I had occasion to pass by there today, and sure enough a private developer is building a skyscraper.

Catholic priests in Colorado sexually abused at least 166 children in the past 70 years

(CNN) – At least 166 children were abused by dozens of Catholic priests in Colorado since 1950, a report released Wednesday says.
The 263-page report details decades of misconduct and reveals how it took nearly 20 years for one diocese to discipline priests accused of sexually abusing children.
"This is a dark and painful history," Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser told reporters. "The culture going back decades was one where there was a reluctance to acknowledge and address wrongdoing."

The report was commissioned by the Colorado attorney general's office in agreement with the state's three dioceses to document sexual misconduct involving minors by priests.
For seven months, former US Attorney Bob Troyer reviewed more than 500 priest files and interviewed witnesses, victims, priests and law enforcement. In his findings, Troyer says most of the incidents took place in the 1960s and 1970s.

Ealing Abbey: Paedophile priests acted 'like the mafia'

A group of paedophile priests behaved "like the mafia", abusing dozens of young boys at a west London school over a 50 year period, a report says.

St Benedict's School, Ealing, was described as a "grim and beastly place" by the Independent Inquiry Into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

A culture of cover-up and denial of sexual abuse operated at Ealing Abbey, which ran the school, the report found.

To date five priests have been jailed for abusing children at the school.
  • In December last year Laurence Soper, 74, was jailed for 18 years for abusing boys in the 1970s and 1980s
  • In 2009, Father David Pearce, 75, nicknamed the "devil in a dog collar", was jailed after he admitted 11 charges of indecent assault dating back to 1972
  • Between 2003 and 2009, "master of discipline" John Maestri, 78, of Chatham in Kent, admitted five indecent assaults against children at St Benedict's in the 1980s and was jailed
  • In 2011, John Skelton was convicted of indecent assaults against two complainants said to have occurred in 1983
  • Father Anthony Gee faced accusations of abuse and a civil action was brought against him

Suspended Indianapolis priest in court on sex crimes charges

A suspended Catholic priest in Indiana has appeared in court on charges alleging he sexually abused a teenage boy.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the Rev. David Marcotte appeared Tuesday in Hamilton County Superior Court on charges of felony child solicitation, vicarious sexual gratification and the dissemination of matter harmful to a minor.

Prosecutors allege that Marcotte engaged the boy in sexual talk and lewd behavior over social media.

The Indianapolis Archdiocese suspended the 32-year-old Marcotte from public ministry in February after its victim assistance coordinator learned of the alleged abuse. The archdiocese said Marcotte was assigned to St. Malachy Parish in Brownsburg and St. Martin of Tours Parish in Martinsville at the time of the alleged abuse.

Roman Catholic Church opens investigation after two nuns became pregnant

The Roman Catholic Church is investigating how two nuns on separate charity missions to Africa became pregnant.

The nuns were sent to their home countries in Africa from their order in Sicily to complete missionary work, Italian news outlet ASNA reported last week.

One nun, age 34, discovered she was pregnant after she was given an ultrasound following complaints of stomach pains.

The other nun, a mother superior originally from Madagascar who cared for the elderly, also found herself pregnant, the report said.

She left the order to return to her home country, the report said. The other is expected to leave the order to raise her child.

French bishops approve payments for church sex abuse victims

French bishops have approved a plan to financially compensate people abused sexually within the church

French bishops on Saturday approved plans to financially compensate people abused sexually within the Roman Catholic Church.

Any person recognized by their bishop as a victim will be eligible to receive money, they said, and the church will appeal for donations to foot the bill. Bishops also voted to allocate 5 million euros ($5.5 million) to an independent commission examining church sex abuse in France and to support prevention efforts.

Eric de Moulins-Beaufort, the archbishop of Reims and president of the Conference of French Bishops, said payments to victims will recognize both their suffering and "the silence, negligence, indifference, lack of reaction or bad decisions or dysfunction within the Church."

The fund was green-lighted by 120 bishops at their biannual assembly in the southwestern town of Lourdes.

Czech Republic may enact bill protecting right to self-defense with a weapon

A Senate amendment is to anchor the right to defend oneself with a legally held weapon says the Czech Senate petition committee

Prague, Sept 17 (CTK) – A Senate amendment is to anchor the right to defend oneself with a legally held weapon, Pavel Cerny, the chairman of the Czech Senate petition committee, and Miroslav Antl (for Social Democrats, CSSD), the chairman of the Senate constitutional and legal committee, told CTK today.

The complementation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms arises from a petition signed by 102,000, including many senior politicians.

The legislation reacts to EU efforts to reduce weapons possession.
