You didn’t think it was the scenery did you?
The parishioners are the treasure of the Church. :-)
Let’s see. I think someone said something like that before…. Hmm…. He literally got burned to death for saying stuff like that, ever so offensive to the money counters who value money more than human lives.
What if a Bishops Conference was receiving billions of government dollars for distribution for abortion and Marxism and LGBTQ stuff, and what if they were afraid of losing “administration fees” unless they forced, say, a “vaccine” mandate on any (arch)diocese that hadn’t yet capitulated, thus, continuing to push the culture of death, the murder of the innocent for the benefit of the more powerful?
And what if a priest were recalcitrant, who said that the treasure of the Church is the souls of all, also of the least of the brethren? I wonder how that would work out.

St. Lawrence knew the Church’s real treasure.
Didn’t he also say: “Turn me over. I think I’m done on this side.”
We have arrived at the convergence of manure and fan blades, globally
Peace to you.
I think the fire of St. Lawrence burns in your soul, Father. You protect the true treasures of the Church with the ferocity of St. Michael pursuing the demon. God bless you and keep you safe.
Yep, St. Lawrence. Long before the Visigoths sacked Rome.
