Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, the prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, cautioned African religious sisters against the idolatry of money.
“How often do bishops and religious fight over money issues?” he preached at a Mass in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. “That is how it is; we know it because we receive news of these fights.”
The prelate added:
Quote:Money commands everything today, money commands power, money creates the poor, money creates death, it creates arms, and it creates fear. We do not want to serve money, we want to serve God and put money at the service of God and our brothers and sisters.

I agree with this opinion, expressed so clearly and wonderfully. As a result, I think they should give back the FFI their property, they should leave the Knights of Malta to do their own business instead of getting involved when loads of cash are involved, and they should go back to listening to the men they put in charge of reforming the activities of the Vatican Bank. Moreover, the Bishops themselves, as well as the cardinals and the Pope, should stop talking about money as if it were a key of salvation, and start talking about prayer, the sacraments, the faith. Can't wait till they start.
Not sure who actually said it, but it's often attributed to the Corsican, "The hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no fatherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."

Actually the love of money could very well be the key to our damnation.
