In bold 3 in 1 move, Pope names commission to reform Vatican Bank.....

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/26/pope-bank-idUSL5N0F228120130626


By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, June 26 (Reuters) - Pope Francis set up a special commission of inquiry on Wednesday to reform the Vatican bank, his boldest move yet to get to grips with an institution that has embarrassed the Catholic Church for decades.

The high-powered, five-member panel, which includes four prelates and a female Harvard law professor, will report directly to him, bypassing the Vatican bureaucracy that itself has sometimes been hit by allegations of scandal and corruption.
*********************
For those of us who have been following this scandal for years now, the most remarkable thing is its persistence. Like the mythical hydra, it just about cain't be killed.

1. Do you think this is a bad thing?

 

BTW, Hercules killed the Hydra.

2. I wish Pope Francis the best success with this commission.

Perhaps he's up to a Herculean task. Cleansing the Augean stables would also be comparable to fixing this bank.

I'm happy he's attempting it, though.

3. There is a post about this in another group (GD?) and lots of speculation

about whether this might lead to a shortened life expectancy for Francis.
