Pope Vows to Tackle Corruption in Cath. Church; Fired Vatican Cardinal of Late for Embezzlement

Pope Francis said in an interview published today (October 30, 2020) that he is determined to root out corruption in the Catholic Church, but that he is not overly optimistic because it is a centuries-old human problem, according to the Reuters website.

In an interview with the Italian news agency AdnKronos, Francis also said he listens to his critics but can't allow himself to get bogged down by every negative thing they say.

In a shocking move last  month, Francis fired Cardinal Angelo Becciu, a former top Vatican official, accusing him of embezzlement and nepotism.
