A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER ~ The Church and Finances
When Pope Francis puts a cardinal in charge of something, the choice is typically an outsider. His most important appointment so far, either lay or religious, is Cardinal George Pell, an Australian whom he recruited from the archdiocese of Sydney. Pell now heads the newly formed Secretariat for the Economy, and Pope Francis has granted Pell power over finances that no official has remotely held before. He is responsible for setting and enforcing all budgets and managing all investments. The son of a heavyweight boxer, Pell, 73, is an imposing figure who is short on niceties and brutally frank about the necessity to radically pare costs.
Pope Francis has a complex but pragmatic view of money."Money is useful to carry out many things, for works to support humanity", he has said. "But when your heart is attached to it, it destroys you." His humble lifestyle follows those precepts. He resides in a one-bedroom, second-floor suite in Casa Santa Marta overlooking the entrance. (Benedict, the former pope, lives nearby in a converted monastery called Mater Ecclesiae and occasionally sends Francis notes with feedback on his interviews.) Visitors say the Pope's lights go on at 4.30am. He's frequently spotted in the buffet line, tray in hand, at the Santa Marta dining room, where the cuisine isn't fancy—it offers a choice of two main courses for lunch and dinner, and features Italian specialties such as pasta con pomodoro and pollo arrosto. He takes no holidays, explaining that if the poor can't take vacations, why should he? Extract from 'Fortune Magazine', September 1, 2014
