Wieder mal was Nettes von „Ask the Pope„:
„At the Vatican, weâ€™re not about money like other big businesses.â€ Weâ€™re about saving souls.
Sure, the old Popes in the medieval ages were a bit greedy. But, not me; Iâ€™m more interested in your eternal destiny.
And bribery doesnâ€™t work with me. Just because you send me 1,000 U.S. dollars doesnâ€™t mean I will get your dead relative or friend out of purgatory, or hell for that matter. I will not compromise my business or religious ethics for money.
Besides, Iâ€™m worth more than that. My speaking fee alone is 5000 U.S. dollars per hour. And my agent thinks I can get more.“
