interim head or the Roman Catholic
church, and a probable successor -of
Pope Leo, today fills a very unique
position and for the next ten days
the Catholic world will watch closely
his utterances regarding the condi
tion of the church.
It has been rumored that Cardi
nal Orcglia, wlto has frequently ex
pressed his dissatisfaction with the
methods of the financial administra
tion at the Vatican, will take ad
vantage of his brief tenure of power
to call to a very strict account those
officials and dignitaries who are at
present intrusted with the control
and management of the papal treas
ury. In fact, the demise of Leo
XIII, is likely to be followed by
some very drastic measures at the
Vatican on the part of Cardinal
Oreglia, and this eventuality is, ac
cording to the well-known divine
at Rome, who writes for the Inde
pendence Beige, a matter of grave
concern and of much discussio'u in
pontifical circles in the Internal
City. While Leo XIII practiced
a far greater amount of economy
than his predecessor on the papal
throne and abolished all sorts of
uselessextravagances and sinecures,
it is doubtful whether he was as
well served in the management and
administration of the pontifical
treasury as was Pius IX, and until
Cardinal Oreglia takes the custom
ary inventory of the contents ot the
treasury and of the funds in the
possession of the late pontiff no one
will know with any degree of cert
itude whether the finances of the
Holy See are in excellent order or
whether the apprehensions which
are expressed in some quarters re
garding them have any foundation.
liver since the Pope lost his tem
poral power in 1870 the financial
affairs of the Holy See have been
the subject of a large and uugratified
curiosity. Many outsiders have
grappled with the proposition, but
none of llictu successfully. The
pope personally was not rich at all,
but his official income and expendi
tures were large. There arc no
estimates discussed in council at
the Vatican and no annual state
ments of the condition of the papal
treasury are made. The pope is
his own treasury department, and
money matters are settled by him
with his accountants under a triple
seal of secrecy.
The financial affairs of the pope
being one of those things not part
icularly the business of outsiders,
many outsiders have taken au ab
sorbing interest in them and the
volunteer experts have been able to
account for a papal expenditure of
$1,500,000 a year. They also can
account for an income of $1,000,000
a year. The puzzle is to find the
missing half a million dollars. This,
work as they will, they have not
been able to do so far. It comes
from somewhere but where?
When Rome became "the capital
of Italy the new government did
not interfere with the benefices of
the secular clergy, and though
friars and monasteries were sup
pressed their inmates were provided
for by a special government fund.
Since then other congregations have
cropped up under foreign auspices
to such an extent that the religious
orders of Rome including the
I wealthy Jesuits, are said to own
' property to the extent of 60,000,
(ooo. .So the lower clergy of Italy,
far from being a drain on the papal
treasury, Help materially to its re
plenishment. The majority of the
1 cardinals arc archbishops and draw
their revenues from their sees. Only
about twenty five live in Rome us
associates with the pope in the
government of the church and draw
salaeies from the papal exchequer.
These "Curia Cardinals' each re
ceive it salary of $5,000 a year,
which cannot be considered large
for such an exalted office and con-
HUM: Li:oS SUCCKSSOIt. Holy See arc of course, paid out of
the exchequer of the Vatican.
Then the pope had a numerous
household of prelates and chamber
lains, a small army of servants and
a miniature army of guards, which
parades on state occasions and
furnishes guards for the great pal
aces of the Vatican and Lntcrnn.
The chamberlains and the officers
of the guard received only' nominal
salaries, but the common soldiers,
the court prelates and the great
staff of subordinate employes cost
ready money, nnd it is stat:d that
the entire cost of the pope's diplo
matic service and of his court
amountsto thesum named $1,500,
000. It is fairly easy to get at the
papal expenditures, but when it
comes to the question of papal in
come we are in the dark at once
and have to grope around, finding
pieces of information her and there
and trying to arrive at a reasonable'
whole by putting them together.
When Pius IX was deprived of
his temporal sovereignty tle Italian
government voted him au annual
subsidy of $645,000. Hut the pope
indignantly refused to accept money
from those who had siezed "the
patrimony uf Peter," and neither
he nor his successor have ever
touched a lire of the subsidy, the
arrears of which now amount to
about $19,000,000. At the time
Pope Pius IX refused this subsidy
he was known to have investment's
in the foreign funds amounting to
$5,000,000. This amount has been
increased since and is now believed
toicldau annual income of not
less than $250,000. The revival of
Peter's pence yielded in the first
years of the papal seclusion a large
amount, but now is believed to
yield only about $300,000 a year.
Jubilees, beatifications of saints,
pilgrimages and other religious
gatherings in Rome, at all of which
offerings arc made to the" Holy See,
yield in ordinary years some $200,
000. The great papal jubilee is
known to have brought in round
numbers $800,000 to the papal
coffers, but that was an extraordin
ary occasion; usually the annual
revenue from religious gatherings,
etc., is only one-fourth of that.
Another source or reventie Is In
the offerings of the faithful who are
admitted to special audiences with
the supreme pontiff. A wealthy
Catholic who is admitted to au
audience with the pope generally
leaves something in the shape of
cash with the prelate on duty in
the ante-chamber. As these special
audiences arc frequent and the of
ferings sometimes large, it is thought
that the pope could not derive less
than another $250,000 a year from
them. The Duke of Norfolk, for
instance, when Jie visited the holy
father, generally left behind him a
little present of $5,000.
So far an income of approximate
ly $1,000,000 has been accounted
for; but where the balance is scrap
ed together to meet the annual out
go of $1,500,000 is beyond the ken
of ordinary mortals. It is thought
that the Queen of Spain and the
Iimperor of Austria, who are most
devout children of the church, con
tribute liberally to the treasury of
the pontiff, but their aid cannot
possibly amount to enough to cover
the missing $500,000.
