Pope Francis, used to stiffing little people on the truth i.e. his role in the Dirty War in Argentina, has decided to forego the transitional bonus given to Vatican employees on the election of a new pope.
A 2011 deficit. Money that lined Bertone’s relatives and cronies' pockets then, and now a cool million or two to refurbish the New Retirement Palace of EPBXVI - Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI.
Like Margaret Thatcher’s 10 million pound funeral made so easily available when 11 million is cut from the national budget for school arts programs, the peasants in the rank and file Vatican staff category just don’t understand the big picture of global finances from
crony crook great financial minds.
Now that Francis is eating cafeteria food in the his hotel cafeteria, I wouldn’t eat it if I were him.
Disgruntled little people like cooks and servers may spit in it like in the rest of the western world in a new sacred tradition of a new emerging wage slave class of unappreciated, ignored, unseen labor.
“…The worker is likewise entitled to a wage that is determined in accordance with the precepts of justice. This needs stressing. The amount a worker receives must be sufficient, in proportion to available funds, to allow him and his family a standard of living consistent with human dignity…”

(P.S. Kiss any cooperation from the ranks regarding any so-called desired for reform of the Vatican bureaucracy – kiss it goodbye Jack! LOL)
