1. It is good that the catholic pope is seeking for noble causes as an aim in its rule.
But let not mankind be fooled on how WEALTHY the Vatican is, even as it rename itself as the 'church for the poor', giving the illusion through
semantics as perceived as being 'poor' by the less informed.
a. The Rothschilds are so obscenely rich that Forbes magazine - the supposed 'authoritative' guide or who is the wealthiest in our world annually,
DARES NOT list their wealth. If they had done so, mankind will go nuts over the figures running into trillions worldwide.
They only took 2 centuries to gain that wealth, through internationl banking and foreclosing of choiced lands in europe.
b. In India Kerala state, its Hindu temple amassed a staggering 22 billion dollar wealth in its vaults through the donations by devotees for
centuries. If the temple leaders had knowledge of using it just on mere fix deposit investments, those deposits would be worth untold TRILLIONS today.
c. The Vatican had !70 CENTURIES of knowledge in investments and accruement of wealth. It ruled the rich trading centre of Byzantine during roman
times, and own valuable tracts of lands during the middle ages GIVEN freely by monarchs as donations, including tithes.
If the Vatican had the guts to be transparent and open its book todays, humankind will be SHOCKED by its wealth.
Yes, there were deficits for sure, but with their kind of wealth, it is only budget over-runs and not debts. Open up the treasury and there is a VAST
amount there to replenish.
2. The second aspect the insiginificant nobody me would like to touch on is how to benefit the poor.
Our Messiah is an economist. ' Feed the poor with fish for one day and you will only feed him a day. But if you TEACH him HOW to fish, you will have
fed him for life'.
This is the economic policy the Pope should adopt, in following the teachings of our Messiah.
Giving to charity is only dropping coins into a hole. We all know how charity works - 70% goes to 'administration' ( and corruption) while only 30%
actually reaches the poor, if any at all.
No. A church for the poor cannot just focus on charity alone. More so the immensely wealthy Vatican, if it sought to be true to our Messiah's
It should focus instead on:-
The jesuits had long been reknown for their education for centuries. Unfortunately, its focuss is on academic subjects and universities. It must focus
on Technical Education as well, to help those whom may not be good at academic subjects, but great on aquiring hands on skills.
Our Messiah in human form was not an elitist scholar by profession. But only a carpenter, to earn a decent and honest living to sustain himself prior
to his mission
Skills too plays a part to help the poor escape poverty, and education is the tried and tested route, for only with an educated population can a
society progress and evolve.
Equally too must the Vatican focuss on 'Upgrading' of skills for the current generation, from doctors to roadsweepers as science and tech advances
daily and EVERY profession on earth must adapt and adopt to the changes. It can only come from changes or will only be left behind, forever poor and
B.) Opportunities and job Creation.
The role of the church had never been to be involve in business. However, for centuries, it had been involved - property, driving up prices, and in
stocks and shares, through the use of its funds as a means to grow and profit.
Be honest - it is gambling, and the church should stay out of gambling.
Instead, it should focus on real investments of start ups in manufacturing and service industries to create jobs for the poor. It can form sub
committees made up of learned corrupt free biz leaders to oversee the selection of worthy companies, mentor them and when it makes profit, sell off
its shares, put it back to the Vatican treasury to start others.
In this manner, we mankind will make the pool of poor smaller, and only help the truly needy with charity, and leave none behind.
Will the aged pope have the energy to do this, and will the Vatican true rulers - the Curia allow this? Only time will tell.
