Remember the German Luxury Bishop of Limburg we reported back on the 13th?
Turns out it wasn’t $42 million he blew through building his house and office and chapel. It was $43 million according to Huffington Post.
Martin Luther protested similar excesses of the Roman Catholic Church way back in 1517, splitting off Lutherans and new Reformed Churches, but Catholicism resists change.
Pope Francis caught wind of the Luxury Bishop and in a public ruling, expelled him from Bishophood.
This is also “reformation” when you are elected Pope on a platform of humility and serving the poor, but Francis has to be careful not to upset too much, too soon.
(Re)form follows function.
