What’s this “cult of money” he’s talking about?
Let’s look at the accumulated wealth of the Roman Catholic Church and ask “who has a balance sheet that looks as nice and plump as the Vatican’s?” before we start babbling about a “cult of money.”
You know that legal truism about asking questions that you don't know the answer to?
The Vatican's assets are worth about $1 billion. It's administrative staff is smaller than the University of Notre Dame.
And they serve over 1 billion Catholics. I would call that the principle of subsidiarity in action.
