    Irony-the leader of the wealthiest religious institution on the planet complaining about profit. I didn't know the Catholic Church had quit taking up offerings.

    Since we seem to be quoting the Pope in this thread, he also said in his Apostolic Exhortation in the chapter under; The Economy and the distribution of income, the following:

    "Welfare projects, which meet certain urgent needs, should be considered merely tempporary responses."

    And here I thought people give money from their heart to help others, not what they can get and not so they can get word to the Pope to quit picking on capitalism and the super rich. He's done and gone hurt dere paw little feelins.
