You know what the Pope's salary is per year? Zero. He is not supposed to even have a bank account. Now he does get room and board and travel paid for as part of his job. But the President of the USA gets that too and he gets a salary. What if people give the Pope some money in a handshake? He is supposed to give it away to charity. I guess when everything is paid for, you don't carry any money in your pocket. I saw a Michael Douglas movie when he was playing President and he did not have any money or credit cards in his pocket. I wonder if the people asking for alms on the streets of Rome know that the Pope is not good for spare change? Or the President for that matter. But I do have money in my pocket. Am I good for alms to those who seek and ask?
