How many refugees has Vatican City taken in?
I support the separation of Church and State. The Vatican needs to stay out of politics and take those trillions of dollars and put their money to work where it counts and STFU.
Since the beginning of the conflict, CRS has provided refugee aid to approximately 1.25 million war-affected Syrians across the Middle East and Europe.

The Vatican bank is the most wealthy in the world. Why not use some of that money and pay to support the migrants? You can talk, but actions matter more than words. Plus, why the hell would anyone take advice from a New World Order pope. Obviously, he has an agenda.

"Pretty sure the Vatican and Jesuit do quite a bit."
A bit amounts to a drop in the ocean im afraid. The funds and monies the Vatican have tucked away and accumulated over the centuries if made available could end world poverty within 5-10 years.
"The guy is a spiritual leader not a president of a country. It's a Tennant of Christianity for God's sake, to help those in need."
What does it say on the one dollar bill?
"In God we Trust", the Pope is Gods representative here on Earth hence apparently far more powerful than any one nation or president/king.
"They" may very well put poor people through schools but they also have been known to promote mass genocide and religious intolerance throughout recorded history and are directly responsible for more pain and misery, death and suffering, than any other organization in recorded times.
"I think they have plenty of problems and hypocrisy but they certainly help refugees and this pope in particular spent his life doing so. The guy is on the verge of being poisoned by his own for trying to return the Catholic Church to a humble place.
Nothing humble about Christianity and the Vatican they ooze ostentatious material wealth and power, always have done, always will do, as to hypocrisy well that's pretty much synonymous with any and all organized religious practice.
