      Not saying you are but I believe this thread in general is headed there.
      Lammy said we can ask questions here if it pertains to the topic. I ain't debating.
      If you want to rile people up then go to a Christian site and give God ALL the glory for your salvation.

      "outcry"?

      One undocumented and so far unsupported claim made by a disaffected former nuncio is not an outcry.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      But IS there a procedure for convicting and jailing a sitting Pope?

      Vatican City is a sovereign state. He could probably just retreat to within the walls that surround Vatican City.

      Thinking about scandal, what it means, where it goes, and how it affects the Church of God.

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.
