Poverty is fine, most priests receive very little from the catholic church. They do not own their cars. The church does.
In the 70’s, our church who had 8 priests, 20 some nuns, and 40 some clergy (St. Benedict’s in Chicago), had a Cadillac with suicide doors. I am not sure of the year model of the car. They all shared it.
Yes, it was a nice car, but, our church also had gold vaulted ceilings, and alabaster columns.
The church was ostentatious to show its power, wealth, as were all Catholic Church’s.
By no means were the priests getting rich.
How is that parish doing now?
Many diocesan priests have their own cars as they typically have not taken a vow of poverty.
Catholic churches are built with great beauty to give glory to God Who is Beauty and Truth.
