Pandemic Deepens Catholic Church’s Financial Crunch
The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a blow to the Catholic Church’s finances, threatening its extensive charitable activities and leading bishops and parish priests to slash expenses and seek funds elsewhere.

The impact of the pandemic, which has pulled the global economy into a likely recession, has been felt at the highest levels of the church. The Vatican has temporarily lost its largest single source of income, the Vatican Museums, since their closure last month. The museums typically receive more than six million visitors each year, yielding revenue of some €40 million ($43 million).

“The principal problem for the Catholic Church is that it is asset rich but liquidity poor,” said the Rev. Anthony Stoeppel, who teaches church finance at St. Patrick’s Seminary and University in Menlo Park, California. “The pope could in theory sell St. Peter’s Basilica but unless he does so he doesn’t have ...

They do not have a money problem. They have tons of gold stored on earth. They own a lot of profitable corporations.
They do money laundering from the mafia.

And they have ministries under their payroll. Pastors who love money and kiss the feet of the pope.

How can two be together if they do not agree. How can the pope claim to be vicar and the church be the only true church. Flee from Babylon

They ought have listened to John Calvin:

[Calvin could scarcely conceal his disappointment, but he nevertheless foresaw a time when matters might be put right. Towards the end of his life he wrote:

"I have taken care to record publicly that **our custom is defective**, so that those who come after me may be able to correct it the more freely and easily."
[Bretschneider, Corpus Reformatorum, XXXVIII, i, p. 213].

Unfortunately, even defective traditions are not changed quite so "freely and easily." In our celebration of communion, we in the Reformed churches have inherited not the more Reformed practice urged by Calvin, but the less-than-Reformed compromise imposed on him by a city used to the old ways. Is it at last time to think about changing our custom?]

Note,

'Unfortunately, even defective traditions are not changed quite so "freely and easily".'

There is hardly anyone who cares about defective practices in the church setting. It's almost as though people prefer to go with the flow and not upset the cart. But in doing so, they disobey God and maybe even restrict some spiritual blessings that they might have had if they had followed the blueprint.

Am I a cold-water-pourer or one who desires red-hot churches?

CCC 1478 - An indulgence is obtained through the Church who, by virtue of the power of binding and loosing granted her by Christ Jesus, intervenes in favor of individual Christians and opens for them the treasury of the merits of Christ and the saints to obtain from the Father of mercies the remission of the temporal punishments due for their sins. Thus the Church does not want simply to come to the aid of these Christians, but also to spur them to works of devotion, penance, and charity.

Well said John. Such a perversion of the truth is definitely not worthy of the title.

They sell and barter favor with God; this is commonly taught as the selling of indulgences for the purpose of lessening the time someone must spend in purgatory and things like that.

Of course the real reason is simply to raise money for the incredibly wealthy Vatican to stay incredibly wealthy. Scripture teaches that salvation and all of God’s blessing are simply a manifestation of His love and mercy and there is nothing that mankind can do to warrant or to earn His favor. Now that does not mean that we shouldn’t worship, obey and honor God as our Lord and King, but if we do it to gain His mercy or even His favor, then we are saying it is not all of God and that Christs sacrifice was not quite good enough and when He said it is finished, He really didn’t mean that. That is where the Catholics have entered into heresy; they believe it begins with God at baptism and then mankind must do their part. So baptism is all of grace, but then our eternal standing depends on man.

Martin Luther had no use for the idea that you could get folks out of purgatory sooner by way of indulgences.
