There was a lot of talk about money before he got there - but the word 'Catechism' has finally crossed his lips.
Who pays for the price for the corruption of a prelate? The children pay who cannot make the sign of the cross, who do not know the Catechism, who are not cared for.
His homily seems to indicate he sees rich peoplle -the love of money and power - as the start of the chain of events causing the corruption depriving our children of Catechesis and salvation.
I don't know about that. Many observing would characterize an out of control/sinful pursuit of money and power as a symptom of corruption, not the cause.
Catholics observing the diabolical disorientation would opine that 99.9% of what is going down all around us is the rejection of Church teaching on human sexuality, which he poo-poos in the public square as trivial substance our people do not have to make judgments on when they are attracted to it.
Once that sin takes root in a soul, it is rocket fuel for personal flaw, pride, avarice, envy, etc., and the person compensates for their low self-esteem with the pursuit of material things and power.
He is feeding the root cause of corruption and boohooing about the symptoms. This is why so many educated Catholics are exasperated and have had just about enough of his trajectory, God bless and protect the man.
