They also have a liquidity problem. Sure, they could sell some priceless art or artifacts to the Hobby Lobby people, but... that's worse, somehow, isn't it?
I bet they could have made an Avignon Pope pony up. Good old days.

Honestly I couldn't really care less.
Altho I guess the most just thing would be to return everything to the countries they were looted from.

Notre Dame belongs to France, and the country lets the catholic church use it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dam ... #Ownership

Quote:
The archdiocese is responsible for paying the employees, for security, heating and cleaning, and for ensuring that the cathedral is open free to visitors. The archdiocese does not receive subsidies from the French state.


So the church should pay a big chunk of it, but not all. It's in France's best interest to keep a historical monument, and a turism magnet.

Ya, but the Vatican's wealth is what I am talking about.

I think you're confusing the Catholic Church's archives with the British Museum.

The Church is sitting on tons of stolen stuff, largely given to it in tribute by their imperialist client states.
