Just the real estate of the Vatican is worth a $1 billion. Some articles put the Vaticans value at $10-$15 billion.

Isn't that way outdated, isn't that 10-15 billion dollar figure from a Time magazine article from 1965 for instance?

Dunno, there are a ton of articles and they all give different amounts.

I don’t know what the value is, but I feel very comfortable saying its more than $1 billion.

So, since the Vatican is "rich," it should sell all its churches, schools, hospitals, orphanages, Vatican City, etc., and give that money to the poor, right? And what exactly would that achieve, besides assuring subsequent generations never receive any of the help and benefits from those same churches, schools, hospitals, orphanages, Vatican City, etc.?

That's just one country, and its been a complete and utter failure at that.

All those who cry about the "Vatican's riches" are fools or tools, IMHO.
