The Bank pf the Holy Ghost???

Have you heard of the BANCO DI SANTO SPIRITO? The Bank of the Holy Spirit? It is owned by the Vatican. The Roman church. The people whose founder embraced poverty. Would you feel comfortable putting your money in a bank that believes in giving up all your personal property? Matthew 6:19-20… “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Talk about mixed-messages!

So I looked into this Bank of the Holy Spirit. They don’t operate like other banks… For instance, when you open account you don’t get a free toaster, you get an altar boy…

I don’t know that I trust their system. Deposits aren’t made at the window, but dropped into a basket. You put the money in a basket and say “bless me father for I have saved. It has been three weeks since my last deposit.”

I will say this for them however, the interest they give is breathtaking. On Monday I deposited just 3 fish and 4 loaves of bread. By Wednesday I opened a bakery and a pickled herring plant.

The security guard is a little old nun with a yardstick.

But it is pretty safe. Back in 1948 A teller embezzled a quarter of a million dollars. He didn’t go to jail but 65 years later the guy’s still saying Hail Marys.
