Vatican’s bill for sainthood is €750,000
The Times is reporting the following today: "Securing sainthood is a commercial process that can cost up to €750,000 in fees paid to a Vatican department that refuses to account for its spending.  That is one of the revelations contained in Merchants in the Temple, a  new book to be published tomorrow lifting the lid on financial skullduggery  and corruption in the Vatican."

REMNANT COMMENT: Well, what of it!  The folks at the Vatican have to eat, too. Besides, I'm sure this in no way detracts from the airtight process by which he post-conciliar Vatican secures halos for the holy. It's just that everything is so expensive these days...including halos. Nothing to see here.

St. Pope John XXIII, Pray for us!
