A possible deal between the Vatican and China's government has been rumored for months; the critical issue to be resolved is the highly controversial matter of allowing China's government a say in selecting bishops.
Add to that the pope’s finance chief, hired PricewaterhouseCoopers to undertake a comprehensive audit of the Vatican’s finances.
On a mandate from Pope Francis to clarify the city-state’s muddled accounts, the newly powerful cardinal had been assessing and tweaking the system; already he had found a total of €1.4 billion “tucked away” off the books.
That's a pretty good chunk of change.
It shows the Pope is digging deep to clean up the mess at the Vatican. After all, if they don't take on a more merciful stance in these times, they will have to kick a large percentage of people out of the church, so the cardinals need to be dragged into the reality of today.
Many wonder why
