Pope Francis Fails To Mention The Vatican Billions As He Gives Speech Denouncing Wealth

The staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment....

The Vatican Billions

“And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!” Revelation 18:16

“The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the U.S.A. alone.


The wealth of the Vatican is nearly incalculable.

The Vatican’s treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. A large bulk of this is stored in gold ingots with the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, while banks in England and Switzerland hold the rest. But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.source – Avro Manhattan

With the real picture in mind, let us know listen with suspended disbelief to Pope Francis attacking people who have lots of money:

CAGLIARI, Sardinia (Reuters) – Pope Francis made one of his strongest attacks on the global economic system on Sunday, saying it could no longer be based on a “god called money” and urged the unemployed to fight for work.

Francis, at the start of a day-long trip to the Sardinian capital, Cagliari, put aside his prepared text at a meeting with unemployed workers, including miners in hard hats who told him of their situation, and improvised for nearly 20 minutes.

“I find suffering here … It weakens you and robs you of hope,” he said. “Excuse me if I use strong words, but where there is no work there is no dignity.”

He discarded his prepared speech after listening to Francesco Mattana, a 45-year-old married father of three who lost his job with an alternative energy company four years ago.

Pope Francis waves as he arrives to lead a mass outside the Shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria in Cagliar, Mattana, his voice trembling, told the pope that unemployment “oppresses you and wears you out to the depths of your soul”.

The crowd of about 20,000 people in a square near the city port chanted what Francis called a prayer for “work, work, work”. They cheered each time he spoke of the rights of workers and the personal devastation caused by joblessness.

The pope, who later celebrated Mass for some 300,000 people outside the city’s cathedral, told them: “We don’t want this globalised economic system which does us so much harm. Men and women have to be at the centre (of an economic system) as God wants, not money.”

“The world has become an idolator of this god called money,” he said. source – Yahoo News

  • One has to feel bad for the Vatican and those responsible that they know not that these are things that will perish, and I pray for them that they see the light that it is important to store up your treasure in Heaven. They don’t talk about that because they focus on their Earthly treasure. It’s all temporal. So sad for them.

  • Why do you think that the Catholic Church has always denied their priests to marry? It was not for any religious reason, Peter was married. It was because the funds obtained from the congregations would also have to go to support the families of these Priests, Bishops, Cardinals and Popes. This Church did not want to share the wealth, but would rather put a heavy burden on their clergy. Of course, this is why so many sexual deviants join the ranks of this church.

  • Revelation 17 and 18 talks about a woman which God calls a “whore”, and she sits on seven hills (the Vatican sits on 7 hills) wears gold and scarlet(the Pope wears gold and scarlet) and is wealthy beyond belief. God also says that she is “drunk with the blood of the saints” (think Roman catacombs, the Spanish Inquisition, etc”. Now, who do YOU think God is talking about?

    • Very Very well said from the NTEB NEWS DESK!!!!

      • Satans Throne Inside The Vatican

    • I know, He’s talking about Jerusalem!
      Jerusalem sits on 7 hills, made by God, not satan. Why would God care about a false church to destroy it when Buda, Mohammed, and others lead as many to hell. Jerusalem is the one who betrayed Him, and played the harlot.

      Exo 28:4 And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
      Exo 28:5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.

      The Cathlic Church wasn’t even formed in Johns day, and I know this is future tense, but the Priest have wore this color since the days of the priesthood. The Abomination of desolation talks place in Jerusalem where our Lord was crucified. All this prophecy is seen in Jerusalem. By the way you say you will be gone, so what would it matter to you? I’ve studied this hard and sought the Lord for years on this matter. I expect to be here, it matters to me. I know for a fact it’s Jerusalem. Every verse given pertaining to the harlot is given for Jerusalem in another parts of the Bible. And why would John marvel so greatly at the harlot? Because it was Jerusalem. The Lord talks about destroying this harlot, and He talks about destroying Jerusalem at the same time at the end.

      Eze 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
      Eze 9:5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
      Eze 9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
      Eze 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
      Eze 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?

      Isa 51:11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
      Isa 51:12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;
      Isa 51:17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.
      Isa 51:18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.
      Isa 51:19 These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee?
      Isa 51:20 Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God.
      Isa 51:21 Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:
      Isa 51:22 Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:

    I knew the Vatican had alot of money and invesrments but never knew it had that much

  • Once upon a time I was a Catholic but have since broken away and saw the light. Jesus had plans for me to receive Him.

    When I was a catholic most of what I ever remember while attending church was preaching on money. Give to the church. Makes sense to what I am seeing in this article regarding the Vatican.

  • What about all of the Vactins asset of land, companies the own?

  • All this wealth and thats not including the treasures stored in the Vatican Museum, I ve been there and saw them, absolutely priceless artefacts paintings and sculptures, chalices and vestments encrusted with jewels. Its incredible what untold wealth is there, and yet the poor in the third countries still are starving and without hope. What a monumental travesty. Who told the Catholic church to accumulate such vast amounts of wealth and who is reponsible for it ? I am reminded of Jesus words “Go and sell all you have and give it to the poor, then you will have treasure in Heaven”. Have they done this ?

  • Why? Why do they continue to accumulate? What do they do with it? Anything? If not, What do they plan to do with it? Do they even know? You are so right, Juni! They are not only disobeying the Lord! They are EVIL! They have hoarded wealth, and REFUSED to share it with the poor, while the Pope, in his satin vetments, silk underwear, and cute little shoes with the fancy buckles is condemning rich men!! My Pastor, from Texas, used to say that when you point a finger at someone, there are three more pointing back at YOU! This man, whom billions look up to, said last week that we are “too concerned with gays and abortion.” Can you believe he said that!?! Gays are DEMANDING, and receiving, acceptance all over the world! We KNOW the Lord’s opinion about this! He abhors their sin! Yet, when we stand for our faith, our beliefs, WE are the ones called haters, we are mocked, threatened, even investigated for “hate speech”! And he said we’re too concerned about abortion! Over 60,000,000 babies have been murdered in America alone since abortions were made legal! How could we NOT be concerned? WHY is he NOT concerned? Why is it NOT his first prayer every day? Does he even care? I could not believe my ears! Our world is so evil, so much worse than it was even a hundred years ago. This pope is leading billions down the path to Hell. My daughter-in-law is Catholic. I pray my son will help her to see the error of her ways, and help her to accept Christ as her Savior. I witness as often as I can – I am far away. A dear friend here, too, is Catholic. They are very hard to get to. They think they are going to Heaven because they are Catholic. Please, Lord, guide me as I witness to my friends, anoint my words so they will understand, and help them to accept Christ as their Savior. I ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  • What happened to the comments I posted earlier?

    • I read your comments, Raymond. I look for them on each post, because I learn so much from what you write! Thank you for sharing your knowledge so generously!

  • Catholic and Protestants are joined

    Jezebel is the type of the modern church today because Catholic and Protestants are joined together now. There’s no getting around it, they’re both denominations, so it’s just mother and sister, that’s all. They fuss and argue with one another, but it’s the same thing, both harlots. Now I’m not saying that myself. I’m quoting from “THUS SAITH THE LORD”

    The Fourth Seal, March 21 1963

  • Is not one Calvary enough for my Lord? Why will you do this? You that’s supposed to love Him, you that knows this is His Word, you that can read Revelation the 22nd chapter and say, “Whoever will take one Word or add one word, “why you do it? Isn’t one Calvary enough for Him? I stand in His defense. I’m His attorney. And I indict you by the Word of God. Change your ways or you’ll go to hell; your denominations will crumble. I indict you in the Presence of the Judge. Right! You, with your forms of godliness, hypocrisies. What do you call it? Ain’t one Calvary enough?
    The Indictment, July 7 1963, William Marrion Brahman


    I believe one of these glorious days, when this uniting of federation of church goes together and the new pope is brought out of the United States (current Pope is a South American) and put over there according to prophecy, then they’ll form an image like unto the beast, and I’ll tell you, the true Church of God, will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostals, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they’ll be, will go together, and cemented by the love of GOD, that’ll make the Body of the LORD JESUS CHRIST….all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side, they’ll go right on into the confederation of churches.

    Acts of the Holy Spirit, December 19 1954

  • satan’s decoy and he’s used it well. 90% of you believe the Vatican is the harlot church, but no where in the Bible does it say she is a religion. satan has deceived many. Are you deceived? Time will tell.

  • The catholic cult, which is the largest landlord in the world, among other religions; and the “poop” heading the charge into the final hour, a false prophet leading many to “wholesale spiritual slaughter.” Yuk it up Francis, yuk it up!!!

  • Exo_28:5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.
    Exo_28:6 And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and of purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.
    Exo_28:8 And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
    Exo_28:15 And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it.
    Exo_39:2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
    Exo_39:3 And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.
    Exo_39:5 And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.
    Exo_39:8 And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

  • Exo 28:4 And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
    Exo 28:5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.

    • It’s the Jewish priest that wear these colors, the ones that sacrifice in the newly built temple in Jerusalem. The Antichrist is going to set in the temple proclaiming to be God, not in Rome.

      Eze_28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

      Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

      2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
      Just this verse alone qualifies Jerusalem to be a harlot. It’s not about Rome. It’s all about Jerusalem.

      Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
      Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
      Nothing holy about Rome.

      Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
      Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem. And then the earthquake she fail down slaying 7000 at the time of the resurrection and rapture:

      Rev 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
      Rev 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

      Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

  • Jesus is lord

    The pope is the devil.
    His followers are satan worshipers.

    Proof, listen to his latest messages. He is trying to change our long Christian values and make us all communist friends of musloms.

    Next thing the NTEB news desk will report is that obuma is friends with this evil pope. Whould not Surprize me!!!!

    End of story.

  • Jesus is lord

    Muslims I mean. But who cares how to spell all the evil words.

  • Gift Economy

    Who has over millenniums never paid a cent for taxes?
    Who has no children to feed?
    Who has no army to arm?
    Who has an own bank with no obligation to respect any international law?
    Who used to advise rich couples not to practice sex, so that their heritage would go to advisers?
    Who burned innocent women for “witchcraft” and took possession of victims’ goods?
    Who proclaimed Nikola Kopernik’s, Galileo’s works and Arabian numbers for diabolic creations?
    Who helped German/Croatian Nazis to kill in Jasenovac 30% of Serbian population and later to reach South America through “rats korridors” ?

    It’s Vatican, of course.

    VATICAN has so much money that they have a huge problem – how to hide it?

    Have a look on economic whistlerblower, Karen Hudes:

    Karen said that 800 000 tonnes gold have been removed from Vatican to Philippines…
    while children dies all over the world, poverty kill most of humanity and war refugees have to be feeded in war destroyed Serbia, …

  • The Daily Mail (London) of September 15, 2012, reported that Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster, was spending $500 million on “a stately home refurbishment.” Gerald is a member of the Church of England. So here’s a prominent Anglican who’s spending as much on refurnishing a mansion as the total wealth Vatican has invested in USA stocks. Gerald owns major skyscrapers and luxury developments in 70 cities in 17 countries. The Catholics are dirt poor next to the Anglicans/Episcopalians. “A secret society gradually absorbing the wealth of the world” was the phrase in the Review of Reviews, May 1902, page 557, describing “The Pilgrims Society,” led by the Windsors (estimated family wealth—$33 trillion, history’s biggest landowners). An earlier member, Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, had a fortune “equal to the entire value of all the property in the State of Texas” (Congressman Wright Patman). Though the Catholics have been at it for some centuries longer, they are very far behind The Pilgrims Society in wealth. The Rothschilds are among the members—the Rockefellers, Du Ponts, Kleinworts, Astors, Harrimans, Vanderbilts etc. Since the Spanish Armada fell to England in 1588, Rome has been distant second in world power to London. Of course you never heard of The Pilgrims Society till now, as it is history’s most secret organization relative to the scale of power it commands. Just one member (another non-Catholic), David Rockefeller, had a biographer William Hoffman say of him—“The power he wields crosses all borders,can make or destroy governments, start or stop wars, profoundly influence everyone’s life.” I am more concerned about a hawk diving towards my head with sharp talons than a gnat buzzing about my cheek. World power is centered in London—not in Rome. This power is centered in the church founded by King Henry VIII and survived his arrant daughter, Queen Bloody Mary, who was most likely poisoned. The 7th Marquess of Salisbury (Pilgrims Society) could tell all about it were he inclined. It is now appropriate to shift concern to London which has vastly exceeded Rome.
