Which is more powerful: God’s anointed Church or bankrupt governments that are trillions of U.S. dollars in debt? Are God’s arms too short to help us? But should we do nothing, then?

First, the Vatican is wealthy. Let the Catholic Church loan money to the poor or to middle class in poor regions to start businesses or expand businesses. Impersonal banks cannot provide the continuing pastoral care, help, counseling, and advice to help people succeed that a Catholic Opportunity Fund could provide. Naturally, Catholics can steer funds to businesses that will hire those who need jobs on fair terms and behave morally.

Second, lack of education or practical skills (vocational) training is one of the greatest causes of poverty. No institution has done more than the Catholic Church to improve education. But this priority has been forgotten, it seems. The United States spends more money for each student than any other country, and receives very bad results. In the past in the U.S.A., non-Catholics often sent their children to Catholic schools to ensure a good, quality future for their children. But proven techniques are being discarded for the latest experimental fantasies. In some cases, training on practical skills is more important. Jesus of course, was a carpenter.

Has the new Pope forgot about John Paul II effort in over throwing socialism in Poland? Leading to the fall of the USSR.

The Media is so stupid in regards to commen sense and history.

Up until the last century all religions of the earth knowledge the destructive nature of theft and envy.

By succumbing to the socialist tide, the RCC has proven itself to be nothing more than another worthless human institution.

There is nothing holy or special about it.
