U people aren't even mentioning the major point he raised. Its not about humble cars or jets. He said, "when u want to buy this kinda expensive, flashy of cars remember that there are some out there hungry. Who can't even see a meal in two days" that's just it.

They shld help poor and hungry people not enriching themselves. Even the scripture said it, JESUS refused to send the crowd away hungry. He made them sit down. And fed them, his flock. He didn't multiply the fish and the bread for himself and his deciples, he gave it to the hungry and starving.
That's the message.

Every pastor who owns a private jet has question marks on his head.

In all honesty- Are there humble cars these days? The Pope goes on a jet, yet wants his followers to go with simple cars.. Hmmm!

Unless he proves a point contrary to mine.. I'll stick to the former.. undecided

He drives a ford focus, and uses commercial jets. Not a personal one. The church can afford ten jets if he so wants. And the new ''M class pope mobile'' was a gift from diemlar chrysler.

Don't mind Pope Francis.
Dude lives in a walled Vatican city, fully independent of Italian government's taxation.
If he declares the assets he controls, Forbes will apologize for all the Billionaire lists they've been publishing.
If he truly cares for the poor, he knows what to do.
Parish priests definitely deserve ordinary luxury cars, they've given up all just to serve God and humanity.

Re: Pope To Priests - Buy Humble Cars by Techwriter: 1:25pm On Jul 07, 2013
Pope moves about with a customized bullet proof car and someone said its for protection. Well I agree with that. There are also reasons behind the private jets pastors fly these days. One of them is for safety. We lost Pst Bimbo Odukoya becos of these. Another is for speed in executing mission work instead of queuing for flight in the airport. Its not to show off. If u know the number of people under scholarship of these men u criticize u will keep quiet.
Re: Pope To Priests - Buy Humble Cars by Nobody: 1:28pm On Jul 07, 2013
It is impossible to calculate the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church. In truth, the church itself likely could not answer that question, even if it wished to.

Its investments and spending are kept secret. Its real estate and art have not been properly evaluated, since the church would never sell them.

There is no doubt, however, that between the church’s priceless art, land, gold and investments across the globe, it is one of the wealthiest institutions on Earth.

Since 313 A.D., when Catholicism became the official religion of the Roman Empire, its power has been in near-constant growth.

The church was able to acquire land, most notably the Papal States surrounding Rome, convert pagan temples and claim relics for itself. Over 300 years, it became one of Europe’s largest landowners.

For the next thousand years, tithes and tributes flowed in from all over Europe. Non-Christians and even fellow Christians were killed and their property confiscated. For example, the Fourth Crusade and the sack of Constantinople in the early 13th century brought it gold, money and jewels.

But by the beginning of the 20th century, the church had faced several hundred years of turbulence. Protestantism had claimed many of its members. The French Revolution at the end of the 18th century outlawed the church and though Napoleon allowed it to return, his relationship with various popes was stormy.

Despite this, the church retained great influence in Europe and the Jesuit order focused on missionary work, spreading Catholicism to other countries.

In the 1870s, the Papal States were annexed by the new kingdom of Italy and the pope’s territorial influence dwindled to the Vatican.

In 1929, the Church received compensation for its lost land in an agreement with the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. Under the Lateran Accords, it was paid about $92-million and, in return, recognized his government.

Investing that money helped fill the Holy See’s coffers, ensuring its financial security.

According to Britain’s Guardian newspaper, the nest egg has grown to at least $655-million.

The Vatican’s portfolio includes property in London, including the building housing Bulgari Jewelers, and apartment buildings in Paris and Switzerland.
