Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Vatican Bank overhaul to be completed in 2014

2014-01-22

The Institute for Religious Works, better known as the Vatican Bank, outlined its progress in reforming the institution. The reforms started in 2010, and some of the major components will be completed by the first half of 2014, according to the report.

 

 

 

In the first three months, the Vatican Bank will implement a "know your customer” application for individual and group accounts. It'll also introduce a "risk-based” client rating to help tackle money laundering.

 

 

 

By mid-year 2014, the IOR said they will have screened all of its accounts, in search of missing or incomplete information. The process started back in 2013. So far, they've looked through some 10,000 client records, or about 55 percent of their accounts.

 

 

 

In addition, the Bank will continue to close the accounts not associated with the Vatican, Catholic groups, or diplomats accredited to the Holy See.

 

 

 

The Vatican Bank made history last year when it published an annual report for the first time ever. The next report will come out in mid-2014.
